August 8, 2017

The Levy County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division (CID) has made two arrests in connection with the home invasion homicide that occurred in the early morning hours of Friday, August 4, 2017 in Williston. Homicide victim James Patterson and shooting victim Ramon Patterson were confronted by armed suspects who opened fire inside the home that night. 

Today CID investigators executed two simultaneous search warrants in the Lincoln Heights subdivision off of CR 318 in east Williston. As a result of these search warrants multiple people were interviewed and two juveniles have been arrested. Jalen Keyshawn Days (10-8-99) and Andrew Lee Robinson (6-29-2000) were taken into custody and have been charged with first degree murder, home invasion robbery with a firearm and aggravated battery with a firearm. Both have been booked into the Levy County Detention Facility and will be transferred to the Department of Juvenile Justice in Gainesville later today.

CID investigators are far from complete with this case. Sheriff McCallum has been told community members have more information that will solidify this case and ensure these two remain in custody.  He is calling our citizens to action and asks that anyone who has information related to this case to contact our office at 352-486-5111 and help us keep the community safe.
