Victim speaks out after former LSU football player shoots her
PORT ALLEN- The woman who was shot in the head by a former LSU Football player, spoke out for the first time since the shooting in September of 2011.
Former tight end Demetri Robinson was convicted of attempted murder for shooting Tanesha Duncan in the head. He also fired shots at two other employees at the Cajun Circus Casino. He plead guilty to attempted murder charges, and faces up to 50 years in prison.
"He stood there, argued with me," Duncan recalled. "I told him to leave, he said f*** it and shot me. That's what I got."
Robinson had recently been banned from the casino.
Duncan fought back tears in a West Baton Rouge Parish courtroom today during victim impact statements, as she talked about how her life hasn't been the same since the incident.
"I just want my life back," Duncan said. "I can't get the independence I had before he shot me back. I can't get my sense of trust of people since he shot me."
Robinson stood up in court and apologized for his actions. He said he is tired of people thinking he's a bad person.
His relatives declined to do an on-camera interview following the hearing. In court, they also apologized to the victim for what she was going through.
Robinson is scheduled to be sentenced next month.
