The teen suspect wanted for shooting two young men outside the Josey Homecoming game on Saturday is a Butler High School graduate, according to his Facebook page.
Jamel Robinson, 19, is wanted for critically wounding 19-year-old Michael Lee and grazing 14-year-old Isaiah Lloyd in the shoulder around 5:20 p.m. Saturday. The incident happened after the Josey’s homecoming game against Westside High School on 15th Street.
Authorities say Lee and an unknown male approached the suspect in the tailgating area of Josey High School, and Robinson pulled a gun and fired two shots. He then fled toward 15th Street and later Essie McIntyre Boulevard.
Lee was struck in the left temple near his eye and the upper back, and he was rushed to Augusta University Medical Center in critical condition. The 14-year-old victim was struck in the shoulder.
According to the sheriff’s office, the shooting followed an apparent altercation.
Robinson is wanted for two counts of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm on school grounds, and weapon possession.
A wanted poster says Robinson should be considered “Armed and Dangerous.”
