The man Charlottesville police believe was involved in a shooting has turned himself in.
Aaron Joshua Robinson turned himself in to University of Virginia Police early this morning. Police charged him with one count of malicious wounding after a shooting incident at the Faulkner Residence area earlier this week.
U-V-A spokeswoman Carol Wood says Robinson is scheduled to appear at a bond hearing in Albemarle General District Court on Friday.
Although the university has not identified the victim, published reports indicate it was former U-V-A football player Jamaine Winborne. He was reportedly shot in the leg outside a campus dormitory Tuesday night.
Police say it is serious, but not life-threatening.
Winborne had reached an agreement with the New York Giants and was supposed to report for a minicamp beginning next Friday. The shooting will likely end his chance with the N-F-L team because the contract was contingent upon Winborne passing a physical.
