Chicago SWAT Team Storms House of Triple Murder Suspect

This tragic but all too familiar violent story started Wednesday night May 11th at 11:20 pm on the 1500 block of west 71st street in the Englewood neighborhood, and would ultimately end on Thursday May 12th at around 3:00pm on 103rd south Union in the Fernwood Neighborhood.

Chicago Police said Kevin Robinson was wanted for questioning and was the prime suspect in the shooting deaths of three people Wednesday night in the West Englewood neighborhood. The shooter knew the victims, who appear to have been family through a child they shared.

Chicago police Said Robinson is suspected of killing his girlfriend 26 year-old Makeesha Starks, her father 50 year-old Jerome Wright and 26-year-old Kiara Kinard, in the city’s Englewood neighborhood. Two of the victims were shot in the head and the other in the back.

When police arrived to arrest Kevin Robinson a several hour standoff with Chicago Police began, the situation escalated when Robinson leaned out a window and exchanged gunfire with officers trying to talk him out at around 9:30 a.m.

Five hours into the standoff Chicago police used bullhorns to appeal him to give himself up, at around noon, the suspect’s mother pleaded with her son from a bullhorn, her shaken voice could be heard echoing throughout the block, his mother pleaded with him for over two hours to no avail to come out peacefully.

As the siege continued armored personal carriers started rolling up to the scene loaded with specialized officers they were clearly getting ready to move in, the chatter coming across the police radio confirmed the Chicago police were concerned about the kids that would soon be converging on the area from the three local schools, moments before the kids were getting ready to be released from the schools, the Chicago Police decided to take swift action and SWAT was finally unleashed and stormed the house only to find the man had apparently shot himself. Robinson’s body was found in an upstairs room on the floor with a gun in his hand, it was not made clear by Police officials if the man had been struck by any of the bullets fired by the Chicago police officers.

The trail of destruction left by Kevin Robinson was finally over at around 2:45 pm. At a 5:00 pm press conference The Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said Robinson had an extensive rap sheet. He was let out of prison early he only served 3.5 years of an 8 year sentence for armed robbery, and was also convicted of aggravated battery and was arrested for attempted murder; with all of this criminal history this so called misunderstood youth was put back on the streets to commit these heinous crimes in the Englewood Neighborhood.
Before the police press conference the sister of Kevin Robinson tried to plant the false narrative that her brother was innocent of all charges and that the Chicago police used excessive force and unjustly killed her innocent brother, while she was making this false claim a rival group stepped in and attempted to set the record straight.
