Two Arrested In Arkansas For Robbery, Murder Of Maine Man
Two men face multiple charges in connection with an armed robbery in Little Rock, Arkansas that left a soldier from Maine dead.
On Friday night, a man in a hooded jacket and another in a panda mask, with his/her face covered by a red cloth, walked into a Valero Big Red gas station in Little Rock, Arkansas, brandishing handguns. A customer in the store, who's originally from Westbrook, Maine, tried to stop the robbery but was killed by the suspects. 23-year-old Shawn Mckeough Jr. was a senior airman in the U.S. Air Force, stationed in Little Rock.
North Little Rock Police say 18-year-old Drequan Robinson and 18-year-old Keith Harris are both in custody. Robinson is charged with Capital Murder and Aggravated Robbery, and police say was one of the two people who can be seen on video walking into the store. Harris faces the same charges but police say was not the person in the panda mask who accompanied Robinson into the store. He has allegedly told police that he was in a vehicle that took the two suspects to the store, and knew that a robbery was going to happen.
Police are continuing their investigation, including determining the identity of the person in the panda mask.
