At 3:38AM on July 30, officers of the Pine Bluff Police Department were dispatched to the American Inn at 2700 East Harding Avenue in reference to an accidental shooting, where officers found 18-year-old Devontre Robinson lying in the breezeway of a building on the north side of the motel.

A blood trail led investigators upstairs to Room 222. It appears that the incident began inside the room and after being shot in the chest, Robinson walked down the stairs to where he collapsed.

Robinson’s body has been taken the State Crime Lab in Little Rock for autopsy.

Investigators learned that the victim and the man who shot him were friends and had been together all day. There had been no problems or disagreements reported. It is being regarded as a suspicious death.

The man that pulled the trigger has been released.

A small caliber semi-automatic handgun, which is believed to have been used in the shooting, was discovered in the parking lot of the motel.
