Two Crowley teens charged as adults in attempted murder case

An Acadia Parish grand jury has indicted two juveniles as adults in an investigation of an attempted murder on April 26 in the 1200 block of Jacobs Avenue, Crowley Police Chief K.P. Gibson said Thursday.

“During the initial investigation, multiple rounds were fired into a residence which was occupied by 5 people,” Gibson said. “Police believed at the time of this incident that the two juvenile suspects were involved, yet did not have probable cause to arrest them.”

About a week later, both suspects, ages 15 and 16, were located and discovered to be carrying concealed, semi-automatic handguns, Gibson said, and they were booked on illegal possession of firearms and other charges.

“Our officers sent the weapons along with evidence to the Acadiana Crime Lab for ballistic testing,” Gibson said. “After the testing was completed, we were advised that the weapons matched the physical evidence from the April 26th shooting scene.”

An Acadia Parish Grand Jury returned indictments on Aug. 12 against Jamurick Robinson, 15 of Crowley and Bryan Jones, 16 of Crowley, as adults, on five counts of attempted second degree murder. Both are were arrested and are being held into the Acadia Parish Jail.

Pandora Robinson of Crowley and Tameka Jones of Crowley also have have been booked into the Acadia Parish Jail for improper supervision of a minor, Gibson said.
