Police said the third man suspected in an armed robbery and shooting has been released from the hospital and charged in the crime.

The Baton Rouge Police Department reported Madison Robinson, 29, of Baton Rouge, faces the following charges:

Attempted first-degree murder (4 counts)

Armed robbery

Illegal discharge of a weapon

Felon in possession of a firearm

Illegal possession of a stolen firearm

He was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on Monday. His bond was set at $755,000. The armed robbery and shooting happened on Jan. 5.

According to the probable cause report, it is believe Robinson and Ryan Boatner, 27, were driven to a home on Charles Street in Baton Rouge by Warren Jackson, 27, to buy marijuana. Jackson reportedly told investigators he stayed in the car.

Detectives said once inside the home, Robinson allegedly held the people at gunpoint while Boatner is suspected of taking their cash and cell phones. Robinson is accused of shooting two of the victims, but one of them fired back and Robinson was hit.

Police said Robinson and Boatner ran out of the home and Jackson drove the injured Robinson to the hospital. It was at that point that Jackson and Boatner were taken into custody, while Robinson was admitted for treatment.

Boatner later escaped police custody, but was caught hours later.
