A man accused of killing 19 year-old Sean Robinson in what police believe was a gang-related shooting in Adams Morgan, has pleaded innocent to charges of murder and attempted murder stemming from the August 2010 homicide.
Robert Givens, 18, was indicted on a charge of first degree murder by a grand jury on April 29. The indictment alleges that Given “while armed with a firearm, purposely and with deliberate and premeditated malice, killed Sean Robinson by shooting him with a firearm on or about August 11, 2010.”
Givens, known as “Chop,” is also charged with two counts attempted murder for assaulting two other people that same night: “T.B’ and “M.W.”
He was arrested on Friday, August 13, 2010, two days after Robinson was killed. He was 17 at the time of his arrest and under the supervision of the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services. He is currently in custody at DC’s Central Detention Facility.
Robinson was found shot at about 9:17 p.m. on Aug 11, 2010 in the 2500 block of Mozart Place NW. He was transported to a local hospital where he was declared dead.
