A pair of residents at the home told officers that Crockett came into the house and assaulted one of the men before the gun went off during the altercation, the report stated.
Crockett fled in a white car and was later arrested on Interstate 77 by a deputy who pulled the car over in a traffic stop, police said.
Inside the home where the robbery took place, deputies said they seized about 70 grams of marijuana, along with drug paraphernalia, after receiving a search warrant, according to the incident report. A shell casing and bullet fragments were recovered in the home, police said.
Crockett was released from the York County jail Friday afternoon after posting $35,615 bond, York County jail officials said.
