The Bloody Face of Man, 20, Who “shot Rookie Police Oficer in the Face” After he Was Arrested by Fellow Officers

A 20-year-old convicted felon has been  charged with shooting a rookie police officer in the face.

Frank Nance, from Atlanta, Georgia, allegedly  shot Atlanta Police Department officer Reginald Robinson on Friday during a  drug-related chase.

Investigators charged the suspect with nine  criminal counts, including aggravated assault, being a convicted felon in  possession of a firearm, having a gun while committing a crime and cocaine  possession.

He was taken to Fulton County jail where he  appeared bruised and bloodied in his mug shot.

Police officers waited for news of their colleague Reginald Robinson outside the Grady Memorial Hospital – (Insert – Frank Nance, from Atlanta, Georgia, allegedly shot Atlanta Police Department officer Reginald Robinson on Friday during a drug-related chase.)

He remained in custody today.

Robinson was listed in stable condition today  at Grady Memorial Hospital.

Police said Robinson was questioning Nance  over a suspected drug deal in southwest Atlanta at around 6:30 p.m. when the man  fled.

The suspect shot the policeman once in the  face near the intersection of Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard and Lee Street  during the foot pursuit, according to department spokesman officer John  Chafee.

Additional officers arriving in the area  detained the 20-year-old and recovered a weapon.

The area around West End Mall and Ralph David  Abernathy was shut down on Friday evening, as investigators combed through the  crime scene.

The 35-year-old officer graduated from  Atlanta’s police academy in November.

Initial reports suggested that the  bullet  that hit officer Robinson may have been fired accidentally, but  the police  report refutes that.

Records show Nance has a long history of  arrests.

The 20-year-old has been in and out of the  Fulton County Jail several times over the last four years, including an arrest  in April on assault and battery charges.
