Apparently, around 6pm Sunday evening, Commanders’ rookie running back Brian Robinson was shot multiple times in an attempted carjacking in the vicinity of H Street, Northeast, in Washington, DC.
From the Washington Times:
The source said Robinson was the victim of a robbery attempt. NBC Sports Washington, citing law enforcement sources, reported that the rookie was shot in an attempted carjacking on the Northeast side of the District when the suspects tried to take the 23-year-old’s Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. Robinson was reportedly taken to the hospital and is now in stable condition.

I just got done visiting w/Brian. He is in good spirits and wanted me to thank everyone for their kind words, prayers & support. He wants his teammates to know he appreciates them all for reaching out and he loves them all & will be back soon doing what he does best.— Ron Rivera (@RiverboatRonHC) August 29, 2022

My understanding is at least two bullets struck #Commanders RB Brian Robinson in the lower body. As @MikeGarafolo said, Robinson is hospitalized in stable condition. A terrible situation that could’ve been even worse.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) August 28, 2022
