ARCHER, Fla. – Two Alachua County teens will be charged as adults in connection with an attempted murder and robbery in Archer, deputies announced Friday.

Faheem Sharod Ringgold, 22, Ta'Vione Williams, 17, Kasey Rowe, 17, and a 14-year-old girl are charged in connection with the shooting of 24-year-old Joenathan Young III.

Judge William Davis signed an order Friday charging Williams and Rowe as adults.

Williams will be transferred from the Juvenile Detention Center in Alachua County to the Alachua County Jail where he will be booked on charges of attempted homicide, grand larceny and robbery with a weapon. He will be held on a $925,000 bond.

Rowe will be transferred from the Juvenile Detention Center in Marion County to the Marion County Jail where she will await extradition back to Alachua County on the charges of attempted homicide, grand larceny and robbery with a weapon. She will be held on a $520,000 bond.

Around 1 a.m. Jan. 11, Alachua County Sheriff's Office deputies found Young in an overturned Nisaan Titan off SW 175th Avenue. Deputies said he was partially clothed and bleeding from a gunshot wound when they found him. Young was taken to UF Health at Shands hospital for treatment. 

According to the ACSO, Ringgold, Williams, Rowe, and an unidentified accomplice, planned to rob Young and lured him from his home. During the robbery attempt, Williams shot the victim and stripped him of his clothing, deputies said.

At approximately 1:45 a.m. that same morning, ACSO deputies pulled over Ringgold on SE 13th Street for an unrelated traffic incident. Ringgold, Williams, and Rowe, as well as a fourth person, tried to run away from deputies. That led to both the Alachua County Sheriff's Office and the Gainesville Police Department conducting a search in the area. 

Deputies in Levy County recognized Ringgold and called ACSO, who took him into custody. 

Ringgold is still in the Alachua County Jail on charges of grand theft, robbery and attempted murder.
