On June 25, 2013, 9:57 p.m. in the 300 block of Latimer Lane, police responded to a call for a female that had been shot.  Upon arrival, officers determined that two unknown men approached a window at the residence and one of the men shot a handgun through the window. Officers found 65 year-old Lai Robinson had been shot and was transported to the hospital where she later died.

Police say 21 year-old Maurice Jamal Harris was involved in the homicide.  On September 5, 2013, Mobile Police located and arrested Harris for Murder and Robbery First Degree.

“At first it didn't seem as if people would be forth coming and it didn't seem to be very many leads but through very good investigation our detectives were able to determine that Mr. Harris was responsible for Mrs. Robinson’s death,” said Police Spokeswoman Ashley Rains.

Detectives will continue the investigation.  Anyone with information should call the Mobile Police Department at (251) 208-7211.
