Two Arrested in Shooting Death

Article excerpt

A man and a woman are the latest to be charged with murder following the July 9 death of a 21-year-old during a robbery outside the Highlander Apartments on Monaco Drive, a month after another man was the first to be jailed as the suspected trigger man, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

Ashanti Danyelle Rodgers and Cameron Omari McIntyre, both 19, are also charged with attempted armed robbery in the case that saw Patrick Dwayne Steadman arrested on the same charges July 15, according to the Sheriff's Office.

The investigation began with the discovery of Richard Allen Green, dead from a gunshot wound to the head when found inside his car in the parking lot, police said. The investigation revealed Green had been shot during a planned robbery that involved three people. Green was an aspiring musician and producer known by the moniker "Billion."

Steadman was the first person tracked down and arrested by police a week after the shooting, also charged with possession of a weapon by a felon, as announced at a Sheriff's Office news conference.

As the investigation continued into who else was at the July 9 scene, Rodgers was tracked down and arrested on Wednesday. Police believe she drove Steadman and McIntyre around that day and knew about the planned robbery. They also said she drove them to the scene, then waited for them and drove off with them after the crime.

Thursday, McIntyre was tracked down in Daytona Beach.

1 KILLED, 1 HURT IN KING STREET SHOOTING

One man is dead and another is being treated for gunshot wounds after an argument turned deadly Friday afternoon in the 400 block of King Street, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

Officers were called to the location off Edison Avenue at about 4:30 pm, Sgt. David Smith said. They found one man in his late 20s who was shot and unresponsive, while another shooting victim in his early 30s was found nearby after running from the scene, Smith said. The first man was declared dead after being transported to a hospital, the sergeant said.

"There was a dispute among several individuals in the street," Smith said. "As it escalated, shooting erupted and our victims were shot. ... At this point, we don't know who our suspects are, or who our victims are. We just know that these two were shot during this incident."

A black Buick sedan that may have been involved in the shooting was seen fleeing the area, Smith said.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at (904) 630-0500.
