South Carolina State football player killed in campus shooting
South Carolina State announced that Brandon Robinson was shot to death outside a campus dorm Friday afternoon.
Brandon Robinson, a junior outside linebacker and defensive end on the South Carolina State football team, was shot to death by another student outside of a dorm on Friday.
Authorities have arrested Justin Singleton, a full-time sophomore student at South Carolina State, and charged him with murder. Police declined to provide further information on the case, citing the ongoing investigation.
"Brandon was a fine young man who was paying his way through college. All he wanted to do was play football for the university," South Carolina State coach Buddy Pough said. "We are at [a] loss for words right now."
Robinson was shot to death Friday afternoon outside Hugine Suites after arguing with Justin Bernard Singleton, 19, of Charleston, the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division said. Singleton was charged with murder and arrested early Saturday at an Orangeburg apartment complex.
Singleton "pulled out a gun and fired at Robinson, hitting him in the neck area," according to an arrest warrant filed by a SLED investigator.
"Our hearts are heavy with grief and sorrow by the senseless act of violence," university president Thomas Elzey said.
Robinson, a native of Orangeburg, S.C., was 20 years old.
