Original story:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Two teens arrested as suspects in the killing of an LRAFB airman during a store robbery last week have been ordered held without bond.

Drequan Robinson and Keith Harris, Jr., both 18, are charged with capital murder in the death of Shawn Mckeough Jr., 23 at the Big Red/Valero station on Broadway in North Little Rock. Robinson is also charged with aggravated robbery.

In court Tuesday morning, a deputy prosecuting attorney and officer testified Robinson was being hidden by an uncle at the Motel 6 in Little Rock. The officer said detectives have texts to prove that the plan was for Robinson to leave for St. Louis.

The judge originally set bond at $500,000 for Robinson but when Harris was given no bond, Robinson’s case was brought back up and given no bond as well.

On Monday, police said Harris admitted to being in the car with four other people on the night of the robbery. He says the group drove around for about an hour, deciding which business to rob.

Harris denied going into the gas station during the robbery. He told police that Drequan Robinson and another person covered their faces and went into the gas station with guns. A short time later, they returned to the car and drove away.

Police are still looking for the second gunman involved in the robbery.
