Albany teen confesses to Dobbs Street murder

An Albany teenager confesses to a murder on Dobbs Street Monday night.

19-year-Gerald Robinson admits to police he fired the shot that killed 18-year-old Malcolm Todd.

Here is more information fro the Albany Police Department-

On Monday, August 30, 2010 around 9:12 p.m., the Albany Police Department Patrol Officers responded to 86 Dobbs Drive (Oak Grove Estate) in reference to a shooting. When they arrived, they discovered that the victim, Malcolm Todd, 18, had been shot in the chest. He later died during transport to Phoebe Putney.

Todd's associate, Gerald Robinson, 19, who was on the scene told Officers that Todd was visiting his residence when an unknown person occupying a black vehicle stopped in front of his residence. Robinson stated when he opened the front door, he noticed the passenger inside of the vehicle raising a gun so he moved out of the way.

When the unknown male fired, the bullet struck Todd who was walking towards the door. Robinson reported that he believed that the shooting was gang retaliation, but when the rival gang members were brought to the police department and questioned, Robinson's details were not consistent with the evidence and any other statements.

After further interviewing Robinson about his initial statement, he admitted that he was the person that committed the offense and was charged with Murder, Aggravated Assault, and Possession of  a firearm during commission of a crime.

 He was transported to the Dougherty County Jail. The autopsy for Todd will be performed on Wednesday, September 1, 2010.
