On the night of February 17th, 2021, nine people, including a five-year-old young boy, were injured in a shooting at a Shell gas station in Columbus, Georgia. Reports suggest the incident was ignited by a fight at a nearby gathering, consequently leading to the victims being hospitalized with non-life-threatening wounds. Out of the nine, seven have already been discharged.
In response, the Columbus police initiated an investigation and identified two culprits: a 35-year-old man named D’Angelo Robinson Sr. and a 15-year-old boy, who is a validated gang member. Both have been charged in connection to the incident, with Robinson Sr. facing eight counts of aggravated assault and the minor one count, presently held in the Regional Youth Detention Center.
The families of the victims seek justice for this tragedy, and the investigations are ongoing in their quest for justice.
Law enforcement is determined to bring the perpetrators to justice and make it clear that such conduct will not be tolerated, with additional charges expected to come.
