ABILENE, Texas - An Abilene teen accused of shooting a boy and robbing has been identified by another victim.

Shawnocey Droemer, 17, was arrested and booked into Taylor County Jail on Oct. 15 for aggravated robbery.

Police said Droemer pulled out a gun and shot a 15-year-old victim in the chest, then ran from the scene with money and the victim's cellphone. The victim was transported to Hendrick Medical Center and is expected to survive.

According to court documents, on Oct. 16, a separate victim's mother showed Droemer's mugshot to her son who "immediately identified Droemer as the individual who robbed him."

The incident happened on June 18 on Kirkwood Street. The victim said an unidentified man came up to him and began punching him in the face. The victim fell to the ground with a bloody nose and busted lips. The suspect took $100 out of his pocket.

The victim described his assailant as" half black and half white with a short afro hairdo."

Droemer is now facing an additional robbery charge with bonds totaling $175,000.
