Augusta Teen, 14, Dies in Ellis Street Shooting



Authorities are looking for a 16-year-old suspect who accidentally shot a younger teen Thursday while a group of them were playing with guns that had just stolen, The Jail Report has learned.

The accidental shooting inside a home on Ellis Street led to the death of 14-year-old Camron “Lil Khamm” Robinson (pictured). The victim was also involved in an earlier burglary when he was accidentally shot in the chest by a 16-year-old male friend while they were inside one of the teen’s home, according to authorities.

The sheriff’s office said this: “The shooting at this time appears to be accidental and an isolated incident. The juvenile is being charged for felony involuntary manslaughter and misdemeanor weapon possession. The juvenile has not been located but a Juvenile Pickup Order has been issued and investigators are following up leads.”
Investigators were able to connect the 16-year-old boy along with three other juveniles to a burglary that occurred on the 2000 block of Fenwick Street, when several guns were taken. The teens have been suspected of committing other burglars in the area, The Jail Report has learned.
All juveniles except the shooting suspect have been arrested and charged with burglary and possession of a firearm by a person under 18. The three juveniles that were apprehended were committed to RYDC.


An Augusta teen was shot dead Thursday afternoon on Ellis Street, authorities said.

The coroner identified the victim as Camron DeShawn Robinson, who lived on the 2000 block of Starnes Street. He is pictured above from his Facebook page.

The teen was shot at least one time and taken to Augusta University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 3:23 p.m. Thursday, Coroner Mark Bowen said. That’s less than an hour after deputies responded to a call on the 2000 block of Ellis Street.

The sheriff’s office said no other information was available, relating no suspect description or suspects.

Friends and family of the teen are already remembering him online, where he went by the name “Lil Khamm.”

  • “Long Live Ya Kham,” one Facebook reader said. “The Hood Gone Miss Ya.”
  • Another said: “Wit Da Wrong Crowd Wrong Place At Wrong Time.”
  • A relative of the victim said this: “MANE HE’S Only 14 Dawg. Why him? Somebody Give Me A Answer Mane . Mane this a new year & my boy promise me he was gonna Change!! That’s crazy. #ripbro. You will always be in my heart.”
