Brandon Scott, Alachua County Jail

Two people are in recovery, and one man is dead after a shooting Sunday night.

At 9816 SW 162nd Terrace in Archer, a small party was meeting in a home when Timothy Robinson and Brandon Scott broke into an argument. Police said Scott then started firing.

The people who were gathered at the home were familiar with each other, but none were related as far as investigators know, said Lt. Todd Kelly of the Sheriff’s Office public information bureau.

Deputies responded to a 911 call around 8 p.m. About an hour earlier, Scott had opened fire on Robinson and two others, Wesley Boykin Jr. and Aja Newton. According to police, Robinson ran from the home and was found dead about 200 yards away.

Boykin and Newton were taken to Shands and are recovering from surgeries performed overnight. Boykin was hit in the abdomen and Newton in the arm and abdomen. They are in critical condition.

Police have yet to determine what the argument was about, Kelly said.

Scott was taken into custody around 10:41 p.m. and is currently at the Alachua County Jail.

Kelly said it hasn’t been determined who owned the gun Scott used. No details of the make, model and caliber have been released.

Alex de Armas contributed reporting.
