Death of Keeven Robinson who died in JPSO custody near Shrewsbury

On May 10, 2018 Keeven Robinson died in custody of Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office (JPSO).

KEEVEN L ROBINSON DOB  06/16/1995 address of record with Jefferson Parish 24th JDC court is Arnoult in Metairie, LA.

According to Sheriff Joseph P. Lopinto,  Keeven Robinson was the subject of an undercover narcotics investigation. After a chase Robinson was handcuffed and later transported to Ochsner Hospital on Jefferson Highway which is very close to where the incident occurred. Keeven Robinson was pronounced dead at Ochsner.

JPSO plain clothes deputies attempted to stop Keeven Robinson at the Shell station but as you can see on  this video Robinson was able to evade them. Soon after at least 2 maybe 3 JPSO vehicles were struck by Robinson and a foot chase occurred. Robinson exited his vehicle leaving his firearm behind in the car. He jumped fences and was eventually apprehended and handcuffed.  Sheriff Lopinto stated that there was no doubt a fight took place in the process of attempting to effect the arrest.

One thing I do not see being discussed at all currently is Keeven Robinson’s criminal history. This gives context as to what JPSO detectives likely were well aware of when they chased and apprehended him.

For those extremely interested in this case please reference both of the video’s containing press conferences to date on this matter. This blog will be updated with any further details as they are made available.

Please keep in mind there is a difference between the term I am using of “arrest charge” and DA charge.  The arrest charge is what the police arrested him of versus what the DA charged him with. Often times plea deals occur and the DA charge is much lower that the arrest charges and in some cases dropped.

Also it is critical to understand that Keeven Robinson has multiple arrests as a minor and those arrests are not available to me in public records.

Keeven Robinson became a convicted felon at the age of 14. On Sept 9th 2009 he was convicted of attempted armed robbery. The arrest date is unknown because he was a juvenile. I know the date of the conviction because it’s referenced in the police report for the arrest on 7/25/2012

NOPD Seeking Suspect in Aggravated Assault with a Firearm in Third District

Suspects

NEW ORLEANS – The NOPD has obtained arrest warrants for Lionel “Yelz” Robertson (DOB: 12-08-1991), Gerald “Frog” West (DOB: 10-24-1996) and Christopher Matthews (DOB unknown) in connection with an aggravated assault with a firearm that occurred on April 30, 2018 in the 2400 block of Jonquil Street.

The victim said that at about 7:00 p.m., he was on the front porch of his home when he saw a dark colored four-door Nissan car approach his residence in the 2400 block of Jonquil Street and recognized the three subjects occupying the vehicle – identifying the driver as Robertson and the passengers as West and Matthews. About 10 minutes later, the victim said, the vehicle returned with the same subjects, but with each wearing a bandana over their face. The vehicle then reportedly stopped in front of the victim’s residence, at which time West and Matthews allegedly opened the passenger doors and began firing handguns at the victim. The victim said he retreated into his home and the subjects fled in the vehicle, heading south on Clematis Street. No injuries were reported in this incident.

As investigation into the incident progressed, the victim positively identified Robertson, West and Matthews as the occupants of the vehicle and West and Mathews as the alleged gunmen. Third District detectives were then able to secure arrest warrants for the individuals.

Robertson is wanted for principal to aggravated assault with a firearm, while both West and Matthews are wanted for aggravated assault with a firearm and aggravated criminal damage to property.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of these three suspects is asked to contact Third District detectives at 504-658-6030 or Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or toll-free at 504-822-1111 or toll-free at 1-877-903-STOP.
