1 arrested, 1 sought in fatal robbery in Blackville

The Blackville, S.C., Police De­part­­ment has identified two suspects in Monday’s fatal shooting of a 65-year-old Columbia man.

Authorities arrested Arbre Ber­nard Robinson, 29, of the 1800 block of Veter­ans Road in Williston, S.C., on Tuesday and charged him with murder in the shooting of Leon Brown, Chief John Holston said in a news release.

Blackville police are searching for Tracy Maurice Davis, 27, of Jones Bridge Road in Blackville, in connection with the shooting.

Police were called to the 100 block of Davis Road in Blackville on Mon­day and found Brown with a gunshot wound in the torso. He died at Barn­well County Hospital.

Witnesses said Brown was visiting the home when two people – one armed with a handgun – entered and took items from Brown. He tried to chase the suspects, and shots were fired. The suspects fled in a dark Ford Crown Victoria.

Robinson is being held in the Barn­well County Detention Center awaiting bond.

Davis is described as a 5-foot-6
black male weighing about 150 pounds. He is known to have gang affiliations with Folk Nation in South Carolina, according to the news release. Davis has “a fascination with fire­arm(s) and should be considered to be armed and dangerous,” Holston said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Blackville police at (803) 284-2333.
