JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A teen from Jacksonville is accused of shooting and killing his classmate who went to First Coast High School in early February.

The shooting took place at Beverly Hills Park near Rutledge H. Pearson Elementary School on Roanoke Boulevard, near Waynesboro Avenue.

According to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, 17-year-old Gregory D. Robinson, of Jacksonville, is accused in the death of 18-year-old Adrian Watkins, Jr.

According to JSO, witnesses told police that Robinson admitted to shooting Watkins.

Police said witnesses also gave the characteristics of Robinson's gun he used to kill Watkins.

Police showed a picture of Robinson to a witness, according to JSO.

After the witness provided this information, police issued a warrant on Robinson's home on Leonid Road near Lem Turner Road, police said. This is when police found the gun, in the laundry room's attic, with the same characteristics, according to JSO.

Police said a teen found Watkins' body in a ditch at Beverly Hills Park near the elementary school around 6:30 p.m. Feb. 3.

Both Robinson and Watskin attended First Coast High School before they were expelled. This was after they got into a fistfight at First Coast High School at the end of January.

Police said Robinson is facing a murder charge.

king kaos you might want to check your own writing skills before you talk or criticize someone else's. First, It's grammar and not "grammer". …"so the interesting and part to talk about…?"…that part of the sentence makes no sense. …"your good to go and noone"? Ohhh…I guess you meant YOU ARE good to go and NONE…. You might need to go back to school yourself…. Apparently Language Arts wasn't your best subject...

OK, we are getting there! This is a little too 2ng grade elementart writing and you can probably combine some of those thoughts into single sentences using commas and such but GREAT improvement! The descriptions are much better too so kudos to the author of this one. I can tell you that its not real surprising though and the story itself is kind of normal\to be expected so the interesting and part to talk about becomes the grammer. This type of thing is so common in Jax its really mundane. In fact you can take this story, make it a template and just change the names and generalize the locations and BOOM your good to go and noone will think "he shot someone and died" or sumpin doggs!
