A Boynton Beach man faces several charges after another man was shot in his upper thighs.

According to police, the shooting happened Friday, December 14 just after 5:30 p.m.

The victim was found lying in the road in the 100 block of N.W. 10th Avenue, according to a police report. He was hospitalized but the injuries were determined to be non-life threatening.

The next day police said the victim told them the gunman who shot him was named JABO. He said the shooting stemmed from an incident about eight years prior when he was with a friend who encountered JABO and robbed him.

In 2014, the victim told police he ran into JABO who demanded his money. But the victim said the previous robbery was not planned ahead of time and that he was not involved.

Friday the shooting victim told police he was gambling with several people when JABO showed up and reportedly said, "You already know what's up. I want my money." The victim reached in his pocket to check for money and that's when JABO pulled a weapon and fired, according to the police report.

Police said the victim was able to identify the alleged gunman, whose name is Jasper Markell Sanders, from a photo lineup.

Late Saturday night during a traffic stop police discovered the driver was Sanders and arrested him.

He's charged with robbery with a firearm, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
