A 17-year-old in North Little Rock is accused of killing an Airman who was attempting to stop an armed robbery- and he will now be held without bail until his capital murder trial.
Drequan Lamont Robinson was arrested on March 18 in connection with the death of Senior Airman Shawn McKeough Jr., who died three days earlier.
The killing took place at the Valero Big Red in North Little Rock, after McKeough attempted to tackle a panda-hat-wearing armed robber before being shot by a second robber wearing a hoodie.
Chief deputy prosecutor John Johnson claimed that Robinson, who confessed to the crime, is the individual responsible for the crime.
“This is the person … who shot and killed Mr. McKeough,” Johnson said.
According to Arkansas Online, McKeough is a native of Maine, and was stationed at Little Rock Air Force Base.
After the Airman was fatally shot, the two bandits fled in a Dodge Charger.
Police and US Marshals eventually tracked Robinson down to a motel, which was registered in his uncle’s name. While at the motel, they also found co-defendant Keith Lamont Harris, aged 18.
Once in police custody, Robinson identified those helping him on the night of the robbery, and described how they came up with the idea of robbing a store earlier that night.
