BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The girlfriend of the 24-year-old man who pleaded guilty to shooting four people, including a 3-year-old boy who was killed, has been found guilty as an accomplice.

The shooting occurred on July 5, 2021, when Dequan Richardson fired into a crowd of people gathered to watch fireworks at the Ferry Grider Homes housing complex on Donavan Drive.

Jonay Robinson, Richardson’s girlfriend, was charged with one count of second degree murder, one count of first degree assault, two counts of second degree assault and one count of criminal possession of a weapon. Erie County District Attorney John Flynn said it was alleged that Robinson was driving the car for Richardson.
