The Metropolitan Police Department in Washington D.C. announced on Wednesday that they have made an arrest in the shooting of Commanders running back Brian Robinson.

In a release, the department announced that two male suspects carrying handguns attempted to rob Robinson on August 28 and one of them fired at him when he resisted. The two suspects fled at that point without taking any property.

The release goes on to say that a 17-year-old male — who was 16 at the time of the shooting — has been arrested and charged with assault with intent to rob while armed with a gun. They also shared photos and video of the other suspect in the case.

Robinson was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries and he returned to the Commanders lineup after missing the first four games of the season.

  1. I don’t see how is is not attempted murder. The gun was used in a matter because he resisted and they wanted his stuff. Anything less is a miscarriage of justice

  2. Guessing they didn’t have the appropriate permits that are supposedly required to carry in DC. Don’t they know the “laws”…

  3. They are young , they didn’t mean it, punishment should be 5 years of going to the Washington games.

  4. Can’t wait for the opponents of sensible gun laws to tell us how they wholeheartedly support the rights of 16 year olds to carry.

  5. Please Keep our NFL players safe and away from situations. Another Sean Taylor incident is just waiting to happen. Gun violence in America will continue. Provide these new players with some sort of an awareness type program.

  6. Hope they haven’t abolished cash bail in DC. Anyone committing a violent felony like this needs to get 10 to 20

    Shooting someone, assuming they don’t die, is assault unless intent can be proven.

    ==========================================

    You don’t point a gun at someone and certainly don’t shoot them unless you plan to take their life. Shouldn’t matter if you are a bad shot.

  8. I guess those college scholarship offers just went out the window…..can’t fix stupid.

    I’m sure Kamala will offer to bail them out
    ______________

    Vice President Harris’s group provided bail for people who were arrested while peacefully protesting the unjustified killing of Breonna Taylor. No one bailed out violent criminals.

  10. Another shot and the boy would have earned an SEC (Sports Empire of the Confederacy) scholarship.

  11. “ Shooting someone, assuming they don’t die, is assault unless intent can be proven.” – Okay, Matlock. They robbed him at gunpoint and then shot him because he didn’t do what they said. What do you think the intent was? To give him a hug?

  12. $50 bail, minimal sentence will be suspended if found guilty. This bs doesn’t just apply to the wealthy, the criminals are considered victims of oppression etc and not responsible for their actions. Watch and see. Wheels already turning with the minimalizing of the charges.

  13. They’ll be back on the street in a matter of hours, probably with Commanders season tickets.

  14. I’m sure, since this is in DC, the criminals will be let go and they can continue receiving their monthly gov checks

  15. But He was a good boy! Never did anything wrong and was planning to go to college in the fall!

  16. Now that Snyder’s selling the team everything is coming up Milhouse! Arrests made, injuries healing, stadium deals fall in place. THIS HOUSE IS CLEAN!!!!!!!

  17. “You don’t point a gun at someone and certainly don’t shoot them unless you plan to take their life. ”

    I agree, but I was quoting the law, not how I feel about it. Legally, shooting someone is not automatically considered to be attempted murder. If you don’t agree, take it up with a judge. I didn’t write the laws.

    If you don’t consider the law…heck, yeah, it was attempted murder.

  18. Rough times indeed.
    Idk what is worse, that a man can be shot and almost killed, or that a man can shoot someone, multiple times and serve very minimal time.

  19. Vice President Harris’s group provided bail for people who were arrested while peacefully protesting the unjustified killing of Breonna Taylor. No one bailed out violent criminals.

    Don’t waste your time, they don’t care about facts. They don’t care that at any one time there are a nearly 500,000 people sitting in jail because they can’t afford bail. They haven’t been convicted, they just can’t afford bail.

  20. They’re peaceful innocent kids. They were playing and the gun accidentally went off. Cops are just profiling by arresting them.

  21. Don’t bother with our Vice President who every time she speaks she sounds like a middle school student giving a report on a book she never read.
