Reward offered for information in Dublin after-prom party killing

The governor’s office is offering a $2,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of people responsible for the fatal shooting at an after-prom party in Dublin on April 4.

Jaquel Robinson, 19, of Washington County, was shot outside Club Illusions, at 104 Union St., about 11:40 p.m. He died hours later at a Macon hospital. Anteria Williams, 19, of Wrightsville was wounded.

Several guns thought to be related to the shooting have been recovered by the GBI and sent off for ballistic, fingerprint and DNA testing, said Eve Rogers, special agent in charge of the GBI’s Eastman field office.

The party drew a crowd of hundreds of people, many from neighboring counties, and investigators are asking for anyone with information about the shooting to talk with authorities.

“They may hold that piece of the puzzle that we need,” Rogers said.

Authorities have said Robinson and Williams didn’t come to the party together. They were in the crowd when shots were fired from multiple guns.

Although the party was supposed to be for teenagers, investigators found evidence that alcohol was consumed.

Anyone with information about case is asked to call the GBI at 478-374-6988, the Dublin Police Department at 478-277-5023 or Crimestoppers at 478-275-0803 or 877-84-CRIME.
