A Muskogee man was charged Tuesday with shooting with intent to kill and robbery for allegedly robbing another man of marijuana and money, court documents state.

Richard Devant Johnson Jr., 20, also is charged with unlawful possession of controlled drug with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm after delinquent adjudication. He remains in the Muskogee County/City Detention Facility on $250,000 bond.

Johnson is charged with shooting Dionneta Triggs in the upper right arm March 12 and robbing Triggs.

Marijuana was recovered at a residence on Inman Street, and an SKS assault rifle and two loaded magazines were found at a nearby abandoned residence, police said.

Johnson was arrested a short time later.

Johnson will be back in court April 1 for a date to be set for a preliminary hearing. At the conclusion of the hearing, a judge will determine if Johnson should stand trial.
