(NEWSONE) — Baltimore police have arrested a 20-year-old Washington man in the shooting of a Morgan State University football player.
Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi (guh-lee-EHL’-mee) says Keith Robertson (pictured right) 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 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.
