Last Winn Dixie Robbery Suspect in Court

Last Winn Dixie Robbery Suspect in Court

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Ala. -

Collier Kirksey, the man police call the master mind of the midtown Winn Dixie Robbery, stands trial this week.

The robbery happened in March 2012 when three men robbed the store at gunpoint. A police officer was shot during the robbery. Neighbors recall hiding inside their homes near Winn Dixie, fearful to go outside.

Mobile Police swarmed the area and ended up in a shootout with Ronald Crear and Jackeith Harrison, who have both already been convicted.

Collier Kirksey is the last to stand trial. Police say he worked at the Winn Dixie and planned the robbery.

Today, a jury is being selected to decide of he is guilty of attempted murder and robbery. Kirksey is charged with five counts of attempted murder and one count of first degree robbery.

News 5 is in court, and will have updates throughout the day on News 5.
