St. Louis Homicides: Weekend of Violence Claims Three Men -- Nos. 12 - 14 of 2013

Posted By on Wed, Jan 30, 2013 at 9:20 AM


It was a violent weekend in the City of St. Louis -- with a total of three separate homicides in what has been a bloody first month of 2013 with the murder count of the year now up to fourteen.

All three victims were black men.

There aren't a whole lot of details in any of these investigations -- but in all three cases, the victims were caught up in gun violence and pronounced dead before they could even be rushed to hospitals.

Terry Robinson, a 29-year-old black male who lived on Redfield in St. Louis was the first to lose his life over the weekend.

He was one of four victims in a shooting at the intersection of Riverview and West Florissant and the only one who died. Four men were apparently driving in a 2000 Chevrolet Malibu when an SUV fired upon their vehicle. The investigation is ongoing. He is the twelfth homicide victim in the city this year.

At around 5 p.m. on Friday, officers responded to a call for shots fired and found these four victims in several locations. Robinson and another 27-year-old man were found near Goodfellow and Lillian. Robinson was immediately pronounced deceased at the scene, suffering gunshot wounds to his head, chest and arm. The second victim was transported to a local hospital in stable condition -- but he had suffered gunshot wounds to the face, hand and leg.

A third victim, also a 27-year-old man, was discovered near Geraldine and Birchner with wounds to his hand and was sent to the hospital.
