Robinson was shot dead in his car, a white Dodge Challenger parked in the driveway, before he could fire his semi-automatic handgun, Gridley said.
Boyd, who went inside the house with Robinson, fled the scene and was picked up by Birdine a short time later in front of a home in the 2500 block of SW 36 Street, the prosecutor said.
“Christopher Robinson lost his life because of a bad plan that went bad,” said Gridley, adding that the man arranged to buy the drugs and then decided to rob the dealers.
Collins also told jurors he saw a black vehicle parked in the intersection of SW 38 Street and Villa Place that appeared to be having a gunfight with the occupants of a house.
He testified seeing a man prosecutors believe to be Boyd, hobbling up Villa Place and falling over a fence before the same black car circled back, helped him into the vehicle and drove away.
“He was more stumbling than he was walking,” Collins said. “I really felt like he had been hit.”
Several witnesses, including a neighbor, testified hearing multiple gunshots and seeing a dark-colored car parked in the intersection during the incident.
But none, Collins included, were able to identify the occupant or occupants of the car.
