Charges filed in Morgan St. shooting

Baltimore police have arrested a 20-year-old Washington man in
the shooting of a Morgan State University football player.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says Keith Robertson
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 Baltimore Sun reported that Robertson was charged with
attempted first-degree murder, assault and handgun charges, citing
police.

The victim was 20-year-old Tyrell Okoro, 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 has an enrollment of about
6,000. There was another nonfatal shooting on the campus in
September.
