Earlier this week, a 17-year-old boy was arrested in connection to the shooting of Washington Commanders running back Brian Robinson Jr.
Robinson was shot during a carjacking back in August in Washington D.C. The rookie was able to survive the incident and return the to the field to play this season for the Commanders.
On Friday night, it was announced that a second arrest was made. And this news was even more troubling than the last, as this time it was a 14-year-old boy who was arrested.
Robinson’s agent released a statement following the second arrest, saying ”We greatly appreciate the diligent work of the detectives and MPD. Brian is grateful for all the and looks forward to great things ahead with the Commanders.”
Robinson had to be taken to the hospital after he was shot in the leg during the carjacking, but he was lucky to avoid any serious damage and was released just days later.
He would go on to make his NFL debut in week 5, and he scored his first career touchdown one week later during a win over the Bears.
