A warrant was issued for Robinson’s arrest after he was identified as the suspect in the May 3 fatal shooting of Tyler Fullen, 27. He was identified based on witnesses and video evidence obtained from a business near the scene of the shooting, Springfield Police Lt. Lou Turner said.

Turner said police received a call, “of a man shot in the street,” in front of a restaurant at 12222 S. Center St. around 7:20 p.m. on May 3.

When officers arrived they found a victim with. “several gunshot wounds to the body.”
