Arrest Made In SC State Football Player Murder


SCSU junior football player Brandon Robinson was shot to death Friday afternoon outside an Orangeburg, South Carolina apartment complex after arguing with another man identified as 19-year-old Justin Bernard Singleton. Singleton was charged with murder and arrested early Saturday at an Orangeburg apartment complex.

Singleton was allegedly arguing with Robinson and "pulled out a gun and fired at Robinson, hitting him in the neck area," according to an arrest warrant filed by a South Carolina Law Enforcement Division investigator.

Authorities initially said they were looking for three other suspects, but have declined to elaborate after that initial report as to whether or not they still are after the Singleton arrest.

Robinson was an engineering major at the school while Singleton majors in business.
