RACINE - Damien L. Robinson, 27, died Sunday afternoon following a shooting near the intersection of St. Patrick and St. Clair streets early Sunday morning. He is the city's 12th homicide victim this year.

Police responded to the area after receiving a call of shots being fired at 2:09 a.m. Sunday. When they arrived they found Robinson, alive, with a gunshot wound to the head. He had been shot while operating a relative's van. Several shots were fired into his vehicle, including the one that caused his fatal injury.

Sunday afternoon police were still piecing the case together. "It does not look like the motive was robbery," said Lt. Kurt Wallen of the Racine Police Department's Major Crimes Unit. Someone either pulled up alongside the van, or Robinson pulled up alongside someone, he said. "And we're trying to get down to the bottom of it."

The investigation is continuing. Anyone with information concerning this homicide is asked to contact the Racine Police Department Detective Bureau at (262) 635-7756 or Crimestoppers of Racine County at (888) 636-9330



Of the 12 this year, 8 are still unsolved.....

[extreme sarcasm]Boy, it's a good thing that we don't have the "privilege" of carrying concealed handguns or the total murders for this year would probably be well over 100.[/extreme sarcasm]

Damn and I just found out that the RPD reclassified a death from 2003 as a homicide and as such because they reclasified it as a homicide this year it counts tword the stats for this year, so we have officialy tripled our homicide rate from last year and are 2 short of our dealist year snce there were 17 homicides in 1994....
