A police report was released by the Washington D.C Metropolitan Police Department, announcing that a recently arrested suspected is believed to be connected to the shooting of Washington Commanders running back Brian Robinson Jr. back in August. Robinson suffered non-life threatening injuries after being shot multiple times in an attempted carjacking.

The suspect is a 17-year-old juvenile male, who is being charged with assault with an intent to rob while armed (gun) after being taken into custody. The case is still open for investigation, police say. Robinson reportedly suffered “a couple of gunshot wounds to his lower extremities.” The rookie running back initially had his wounds treated at the scene by paramedics before being transported to a local hospital. Reports emerged alleging that the bullets struck his glute and lower leg.

Robinson posted on his Instagram account that his surgery “went well.” Robinson made his NFL debut in October against the visiting Tennessee Titans to the song “Many Men”.

The rookie still made it to the Commanders’ 53-man roster after the end of training camp. Robinson played four seasons at Alabama. He was first team all SEC and the Cotton Bowl Classic MVP in 2021. He also won two national championships in 2017 and 2021. Robinson was selected by the Commanders in the third round and is currently signed to a four-year rookie contract.
