In that indictment, Tinker, 16, was charged with one weapons violation, in addition to the murder charge.
According to charging documents, a robbery victim identified as “Witness 1,” told police that on the morning of August 4, 2012, 5 subjects, including a light-skinned black male with a mask over his head, who police say was Tinker, robbed the witness on the 2600 block of Douglas Road Southeast.
Tinker threatened Witness 1 and demanded money saying, “Do you want your brains? Where’s the money?” After robbing Witness 1, the masked man walked toward Robinson. When Robinson began to run away, Witness 1 heard three or four gunshots. All five subjects ran.
Charging documents say Robinson died of multiple gunshots in the body and head. Tinker has not been charged with robbery.
A status hearing in the case is scheduled for July 12.
