Man shot in throat after 2010 robbery dies

A man who was shot in the throat last summer after a holdup died over the weekend.

Sean Robinson was riding a bicycle near the intersection of Eisenhower Parkway and C Street July 18 when he was robbed at gunpoint by two people. Robinson chased the bandits and confronted them a few minutes later.

During that confrontation, he was shot in the throat. Robinson was paralyzed from the neck down and was later moved to North Macon Health Care on Anthony Road, said Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones.

Robinson had been “doing fine, ... as good as you can be” in his condition, Jones said. About 8:25 p.m. Saturday night, however, when workers checked on Robinson, he wasn’t breathing, Jones said.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.

Two teens, Shaheed Rashad Milford and Brandon Bernard Stuckey, both 16, have been indicted on armed robbery and aggravated assault charges in the case.

John Regan, the Bibb County prosecutor handling the case, said he could not comment on any possible upgrade of charges in the case. He said he needed to first talk to police and doctors before making any decision.
