Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich announced Thursday that a criminal court jury convicted a Millington man for a deadly shooting at a gas station two years ago.
It took the jury two hours to decide that William Robinson, 31, was guilty as indicted for voluntary manslaughter. Robinson faces up to 15 years in prison. Sentencing is scheduled for February 24 in Criminal Court Division 3.
According to testimony, on January 10, 2008, Robinson walked out of the Mapco located at 3251 Lamar and was getting into a witness’ car. The victim, David McMahan, approached the witness, who was his former girlfriend, and screamed at her. McMahan then screamed at the defendant, who pulled out a handgun. According to testimony, the victim shouted, “What are you going to do, shoot me?” Robinson then fired six shots, striking the victim three times, once in the chest, once in the arm, and once in the back. Robinson died on the way to The Med. Memphis police arrested Robinson at the scene.
Assistant District Attorneys Marlinee Iverson and David Zak prosecuted this case.
