SAN ANTONIO - Bexar County sheriff's detectives have social media to thank for helping them track down a suspect in a July robbery.

Detectives say they found Jarrett Dibrell, 17, through a Facebook page that he used to contact the victim and arrange a meeting with him.

The victim, a 17-year-old boy, had posted online that he was selling some expensive sneakers.

An arrest warrant affidavit said that Dibrell contacted him through a Facebook message, saying he was interested in buying them and set up a meeting.

Detectives were called to the 7500 block of Lincoln Village early on the morning of July 31.

There, they found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound to his leg.

The victim told investigators that after he set up the meeting online, three people had shown up at his home -- two of whom had guns.

The teen said they took his sneakers, then one of them shot him in the leg as they left.

The affidavit said detectives later learned the identity of the owner of the Facebook page and it was Dibrell.

They also showed a photo lineup to the victim and he identified Dibrell as one of the suspects, the affidavit said.

There is no word on whether police know the identities of the other two people involved in the robbery and shooting.
