(KMOV) – A 19-year-old U.S. Army soldier faces federal charges after he allegedly shot up a Swansea convenience store during a robbery on Thursday.

Denzell Grant was charged with armed robbery and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a violence crime.

According to prosecutors, Grant walked into Max’s One Stop, showed a gun and demanded the clerk give him money from the register. Prosecutors say at one point Grant fired his gun.

He was given an undisclosed amount of cash and fled the scene. He was later detained.

Additional details surrounding the incident were not immediately available.

Grant, who was stationed in Fort Hood, Tex., remains in custody without bond.

If convicted of both counts, Grant could spend up to 20 years in prison and be fined up to $500,000.
