CALLAHAN, Fla. – An 81-year-old father is facing attempted murder charges after shooting his daughter in the arm Tuesday evening, according to the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office.

According to the arrest report, Robert Hall and his daughter, Robina Robertson, who had been living with him for about three months as his caretaker, were having a discussion in the living room about saving money and the fact that she wouldn’t be able to take care of him anymore. That’s when Robertson said Hall became aggressive and the conversation escalated to an argument.

The report states that Hall started to call Robertson names and threatened to kill her. That’s when his daughter shouted: “Are you serious, Dad?”

The report said Hall continued to threaten his daughter, saying, “You won’t raise your voice to me in this house? You stupid (expletive). I’ll kill you.” Then, according to the report, he pulled a .38 caliber Smith & Wesson revolver from underneath his chair and started shooting toward her.

Robertson walked away and pleaded for her father not to kill her as he was shooting, but she was struck in the shoulder, the report said.

Robertson told News4JAX she feels like her dad brought her in the living room to bring her in close range. Robertson said their family — including her father — had a great Christmas. She also said she was estranged from Hall for a while, but came to help him out with his medical needs after he and his wife separated.

The report said Robertson was covered in blood and left the home. Bystanders helped Robertson in the street and called 911.

Deputies said Robertson was sitting in her vehicle in front of a former fire station on Ratliff Road when they arrived. She told deputies that her father shot her at home.

She was taken to the hospital for surgery with non-life threatening injuries and released to recover from her injuries.

Robertson also told deputies that she had text messages where Hall threatened her in the past.

When deputies searched the home, they found two bullet holes in the wall and three shell casings. Hall was arrested and charged with attempted murder.

“He’s 81 years old and has some knee issues. You don’t think an 81-year-old is going to shoot their daughter, but it does happen,” Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper said.

Hall is currently in the hospital for unrelated health issues and will be booked into jail once he recovers.

Robertson said she’s looking for counseling and feels a lot of fear and anxiety after the shooting.
