Household mourns Jacksonville’s spouse shot useless by good friend

Alexander James Wiggins, the man arrested on death, was Robinson’s friend.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The woman who was killed in a double shooting in the city’s Lackawanna Ward on Nov. 17 was identified as Keteria Shanell Robinson, according to a recent report from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

Along with the name of the 29-year-old woman, there is information that Alexander James Wiggins, the man who was arrested in the death, was Robinson’s friend.

Robinson’s sister set up a GoFundMe account to help out with the family, which has four children.

“My sister was killed for gun violence,” wrote Michann Jones. “We have no life insurance and she left four children behind. My son was shot, but he survived, so my family and I are going through a lot right now. Please keep us in your prayers and help us.”

The shooting was reported around 12:30 p.m. on the 2800 block on Maplewood Street north of Edison Avenue, police said. Officers found Robinson and a man suffering from gunshot wounds in a car.

Investigators said a suspect escaped in a black Chevrolet Impala. Wiggins was arrested on December 3rd and charged with second degree murder and attempted murder and the firing of deadly missiles. There is no further information on what could have led to the shooting.

Wiggins was arrested in 2019 for violating an injunction for domestic violence and threats. That warrant said a former friend who had a child with Wiggins told authorities she found her tires slashed after he knocked on her door and left. She said he told her when she called the police, “I’ll kill you,” according to the warrant. That case closed in January, court records show.

Wiggins filed an injunction against the same former girlfriend for domestic violence in 2018, saying she punched him in the head. He said she “had me arrested for something I did not do to her,” which resulted in 43 days in prison.

He also said that she “continues to molest me” despite the fact that she issued her own injunction against him that year. Her restraining order stated that she was beaten and threatened at gunpoint during an argument.
