Robinson  SPECIAL

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.

.......the thugs favorite car

.......the thugs favorite car of choice; old ex police cruisers.....fast, people are used to seeing them so they don't take a second look when they are around, factory tinted windows..................ALL retired police cars should be sent to the crusher....no exceptions. If you figure the cost of paperwork, storage and disposing of the vehicle versus selling for scrap, taxpayers will come out to the good. As scrap they should bring $500-$600 and it's over and done with..............easy money, issues solved.

Their blind then

because you can quite easily tell it isn't a police car.
I've yet to see one that made me second guess whether it is or isn't.
Regardless, this is an instance when you just let them get away instead of risking/losing your life over material things.
