KILLEEN (September 10, 2013)—A second Killeen teenager who was named in a robbery indictment last week was formally charged Monday.
Bell County Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke arraigned Marion Cortez Robinson, Jr., 17, on the robbery charge and set Robinson’s bond at $100,000.
Robinson was listed Tuesday on the online Bell County Jail log as in custody.
Another Killeen 17-year-old, Xavier Jevon Reese, also was listed as in custody in lieu of a $100,000 bond in connection with the same incident.
An affidavit in the case says three teenagers, one of them a juvenile, are accused of the August 15 gunpoint robbery of a man in Killeen who was shot when his Cadillac was stolen near the intersection of Turner Avenue and 38th St.
Reese, Robinson and the unnamed juvenile all were arrested shortly after the incident was reported to police.
Court documents show the victim pulled his car up in front of a home in the 3800 block of Turner and stopped when a man approached his car and asked for a cigarette.
During the exchange the assailant pulled a handgun, pointed it at the victim and demanded his valuables, including the car.
Two other men got into the passenger side of the Cadillac and the three drove off.
The victim got into another car and began chasing the suspects while he called police.
When the robbers saw him following them one of the three began shooting at the victim, who was wounded in the gunfire.
When police arrived at the spot where the teenagers stopped the stolen car, one of the three told officers his car had been stolen.
But when police found a cellular telephone inside the stolen car that belonged to one of the robbers.
The victim identified the three suspects at the scene.
