A weekend shooting spree that left five people injured in Alabama and Georgia was racially motivated, police believe.

At a preliminary hearing in Columbus Recorder’s Court in Georgia, a detective testified that 39-year-old Justin Tyran Roberts, who is black, allegedly admitted to police that he was targeting white men during a series of attacks over two days.

“Basically, he explained throughout his life, specifically white males had taken from him, and also what he described as military-looking white males had taken from him,” Detective Brandon Lockhart testified.

The three separate attacks in Columbus, Ga., and Phenix City, Ala., began on Friday around 8:15 p.m. A white male was shot as he was climbing out of his car outside the Courtyard by Marriott hotel in Phenix City, the Ledger-Enquirer reports. He sustained non-life threatening injuries. Roberts then shot three more people – two white men and a black woman – two hours later.

The following day, at about 2 p.m., police believe Roberts fired at a man as he was getting into his vehicle under the Oglethorpe Bridge in Columbus. He was struck in the back and has since been released from the hospital, the Ledger-Enquirer reports.

During the hearing for the Columbus shooting, Lockhart testified that Roberts also told police that men were shooting at him with a slingshot in the woods, which caused him to get a skin infection, the Ledger-Enquirer reports. But police said Roberts had no wounds.

The judge agreed during the hearing to Roberts’ public defender’s request for a mental health evaluation, according to the Ledger-Enquirer.

Roberts is charged with aggravated assault, using a gun to commit a crime, and being a convicted felon with a firearm in the bridge shooting. He is also charged with three counts of aggravated assault, using a gun to commit a crime, and being a felon in possession of a firearm in the attacks on the two men and one woman in Columbus, the Ledger-Enquirer reports. It is unclear if he has been charged in the Phenix City shooting.

    1. So hypocritical. “Man shoots….” instead of “Black guy shoots…” Stop been politically correct

  1. “Using a gun to commiat a crime”? HOW ABOUT ATTEMPTED MURDER! This is what the MSM is brainwashing in folks that all white men are racist and targeting blacks to distroy their lives. The racist narrative is getting out of hand.

  2. Another example of white supremacy. Oh, wait, it’s a black man shooting white people. Oh, then it must be because he felt that whites are evil, so that makes it okay.

  3. What, no hate crime charges? Oh, that’s right the shooter is black, and the victims are white, except for the black lady he also shot. Hence no hate crime huh?

  4. This is a hate crime.. This man hates whites and should be charged with a hate crime, don’t use that lame excuse that he has mental issues. This was planned.
