A D.C. youth charged in the shooting of Washington Commanders running back Brian Robinson Jr. during an attempted robbery in August has also been charged in an October fatal shooting of a 15-year-old. Police said 15-year-old Andre Robertson Jr. was murdered on his grandmother’s porch.
A judge ordered the 15-year-old suspect arrested and charged in Robertson Jr.’s murder to remain in prison because he’s associated with another criminal investigation. That same 15-year-old was one of two teens arrested earlier this month in connection with the shooting and attempted robbery of the Washington RB.
Police also charged a 13-year-old in connection with Robertson’s killing and they charged a 17-year-old in connection with the shooting and wounding of Robinson, who has since returned to playing for the Commanders.
Robinson was able to return to the field for Washington in relatively short order. He played for the Commanders in Week 5, just over a month after he was shot twice, and ensured that he would have a chance to play football during his rookie season.
Had Robinson suffered any sort of ligament damage in his knee, his season would almost certainly have come to an end before it began. Instead, he was able to return to the field and contribute to a team that is trying to make a playoff push.
Brian Robinson Jr. has collected 362 yards on 108 attempts, scoring two times.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
