D.C. Man Charged With Attempted Murder In Shooting Of Morgan State Football Player
Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi (guh-lee-EHL’-mee) says Keith Robertson (pictured right) confessed to the shooting, which occurred around 1 p.m. Friday near a residence hall.
Robertson was taken into custody shortly after the shooting, when police say he was seen running from the scene. A semi-automatic handgun was recovered nearby. The victim was 20-year-old Tyrell Okoro (pictured left), a sophomore offensive lineman on the football team. Guglielmi says detectives believe there was a previous dispute between Robertson and the victim.
Morgan State spokesman Clinton Coleman says Robertson is not a student at the university. Morgan State is a historically black institution with an enrollment of about 6,000. There was another nonfatal shooting on the campus in September.
