Jeremiah Robinson has been found guilty and sentenced to 45 years in prison for the May 2017 murder of LeDajrick “L.D.” Rajae Cox.

According to a previous NBC 5 report, Robinson was with two others when they stopped at an Irving 7-Eleven. There, comments toward a woman lead to a verbal confrontation with Cox, who was filling up the woman’s car with gas. 

Police say they arrested 17-year-old Jeremiah Robinson (inset) Tuesday in connection with a shooting in Irving Sunday that left an 18-year-old man dead the day after he graduated from Dallas Carter High School.

All issues appeared to be resolved but as both groups returned to their vehicles, Robinson’s vehicle pulled alongside Cox and opened fire, killing Cox and injuring two others.

Cox was transported to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas where he died from injuries to his head and chest. 

He graduated from David W. Carter High School just five hours before.
