As a 14-year-old, he was convicted of attempted robbery of an Oklahoma City pharmacy and agreed to a plea deal. A warrant was issued in Feb. after he violated terms of his deal.

A teenager convicted of attempted robbery of an Oklahoma City pharmacy and wanted for murder charges is now in the Oklahoma County Jail after being shot at the Nottingham Square Apartment complex in Moore.

19-year-old Jevontai Ingram was booked into the jail early Wednesday morning after he was taken to OU Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the face Tuesday night. Officials say  they believe the shooting to be gang related and do not have any suspects in custody.

"I think everybody connected with the case and who's followed the case probably figured it was just inevitable and a question of time before it did happen," said attorney Doug Friesen. Friesen is Jerome Ersland's attorney.

During the robbery involving Ingram at Reliable Pharmacy in 2009, Jerome Ersland shot and killed a teen Ingram was with, Antwun Parker. Ersland was convicted of murder in the controversial case and was sentenced to life in prison.

Friesen said given the fact that Ingram now faces life in prison for violating his probation, he thought Ingram might change his ways.

"It is clear that he is not able to stay away from the bad elements that are obviously affecting his life," said Friesen.

Ingram was 14 at the time of the robbery and was not charged as an adult. He pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit a robbery with a firearm in January of 2010 and was a key witness in the murder trials of Emanuel Mitchell and Anthony Morrison, the two men prosecutors say planned the robbery and provided the gun Ingram used. He spent three years behind bars in a juvenile facility for his actions that night.

In September 2012, Ingram ran into trouble with the law again when police arrested him after his mother told investigators he damaged her car. That case was eventually dropped.

In May, an Oklahoma County judge issued an arrest warrant after he failed to appear at a court hearing that was a review of his juvenile conviction. Prosecutors are now working to bridge him into the adult system; doing so would mean Ingram could potentially face life in prison for his role in the robbery that left his friend dead.
