BELTON, Texas (KWTX) Belton police Wednesday released a sketch of one of the two suspects in a deadly Sept. 30 home invasion.

Redrick Robinson, 30, was shot repeatedly early on Sept. 30 at a home in the 800 block of Carla Kay Drive in Belton.

He died at the scene.

Police found evidence of forced entry.

The suspect whose sketch was released Wednesday is between 5-foot-5 and 5-foot-7 and has a medium build.

The second suspect is between 5-foot-10 and 6-foot-1 and has a medium build.

The two men may be driving a light-colored 2011 or newer model Ford Explorer.

Investigators are asking anyone with information to call the Belton Police Department at (254) 933-5840 or Bell County Crime Stoppers at (254) 526-TIPS.

"They just shot him. They shot him down like a dog."

The victim’s wife, Tanesha Williams-Robinson told KWTX in an earlier interview that her husband begged for his life before he was shot to death in the master bedroom of the couple’s home.

She says around 4 a.m. on Sept. 30 there was a knock at the door.

Her husband had already fallen asleep so she went to answer it.

The man at the door asked to use a phone, and then another man appeared from around a corner.

She said she tried to shut the door, but the two men forced their way in.

She said she and her husband offered them everything they had in order to keep their children safe.

She says the men kept asking them the same question over and over.

"They just kept saying ‘Where is it at,’" she said.

When the men realized the couple did not have what they were looking for they told them to get on the ground.

Tanesha said her husband begged for their lives asking the intruders to spare them and take whatever they wanted.

But one of the men decided he wanted to do more.

"They said ‘I'll leave your wife here with the kids, but you got to go,’" Tanesha said.

"They just shot him. They shot him down like a dog."

She says she wanted to stick by her husband and help him fight. But she realized he was gone.

"They took his life. They stole his life," she said.

She says the men then fled and when she was getting up she realized her 4-year-old son was standing right there.

"I see my four-year-old over his daddy just looking," she said.

"How long was my baby there? What did my baby see?"

"They took his life. They stole his life, they took my husband's life."

Tanesha says Redrick was a loving husband. He loved all 11 of his children.

He was goofy and hardworking and was Tanesha's best friend.

She says he was living his life the right way and staying out of trouble.

"I will miss everything about him.

"I love that man from the top of his head to the bottom of his feet."
