Then-teen shooter convicted in 2007 attempted murder
A 23-year-old Jacksonville man was convicted Thursday evening on charges of attempted second-degree murder, carrying a concealed firearm, possession of a firearm by a minor, discharging a firearm from a vehicle, and possession of a firearm by a juvenile delinquent found to have committed a felony act.
In April 2007, then-17-year-old Anthony Robinson shot at Morris Henderson Jr. while riding in a car. The shooting was the result of Robinson not liking Henderson.
The vehicle Robinson was in pulled up next to Henderson's vehicle, and Robinson then fired several times at the driver's door and window. Only Henderson's head was grazed by a bullet.
"It took five and a half years, but the state never forgot about this case, about Mr. Robinson, or the crime he committed. Finally, justice is served for Mr. Henderson and his family," said Assistant State Attorney David Thompson.
Robinson has previous convictions for attempted burglary and grand theft auto. He now faces 20 to 45 years in prison when he's sentenced the week of Nov. 13.
