    Police are pursing four suspects and know who they are, the university said. The shooting apparently occurred inside a dormitory building.

    Brandon A. Robinson, 20, was taken to a local hospital after being shot outside the Hugine Suites, a dorm complex on campus. He later died.

    Robinson was a defensive lineman on the school's football team. The 6-foot tall, 230 pound redshirt junior was a defensive lineman for the Bulldogs.

    When I saw there was another school shooting today, I just wanted to pull my hair out (as if it needs the help). When will this madness stop?

    I hope LE finds all 4 of the suspects quickly and they are brought to justice.

    I cannot imagine how it would be to have children in school in America. This seems never ending. I would be worried sick from the time they left home in the morning until they came home in the afternoon. Even going to University is not safe. Since coming on W/S it is a never ending cycle of people being shot. My 16 year old granddaughter has just returned after being 3 weeks travelling around America playing basketball. We were on tender hooks the whole time she was away. My brother and sister-in-law did a trip throughout the U.S. and it was just their luck that they were leaving from L.A. to come home when the shooting started there. I admire all of you for having to live with what appears to be constant threats. JMO

    Police arrested a suspect early Saturday in the fatal shooting at South Carolina State University. Justin Bernard Singleton, 19, was charged with Friday's murder of 20-year-old student Brandon Robinson, according to a statement from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division.

    The two were arguing, when Singleton pulled out a gun and fired at Robinson, hitting him in the neck, police said.
    I wonder if LE will pursue arrests of the other 3 originally ID'd as suspects? Surely the other 3 men who left campus with JBS were aware of what just transpired.

    Why do so many young people today resort to violence to settle a dispute? I remember when I was in college, there was an older student who had served in the Vietnam war. He was an odd character, and one day some students were discussing a dispute they were having with some men from another fraternity. The vet offered to shoot the men for them, which shocked the other students. They told him, "That's not the way we handle our differences." It seems times have really changed. Are young people today exposed to violence so much that they are desensitized to it, like the Vietnam vet was, to the point they see it as a viable "solution" to their problems?

    Brandon Robinson played outside linebacker and defensive end and appeared in four games last season. He attended high school in Orangeburg and was an engineering technology student.

    "Brandon was a fine young man who was paying his way through college. All he wanted to do was play football for the university," Bulldogs coach Buddy Pough said. "We are at (a) loss for words right now."

    SLED spokesman Thom Berry declined to say Saturday whether investigators were continuing to hunt for three other suspects. Detectives were confident Singleton pulled the trigger, he said.

    "Our Investigation is still under way and is ongoing," Berry said.

    June 2015:

    Man guilty of killing SCSU student

    http://thetandd.com/news/man-guilty-...a51a3ca6a.html

    Justin Bernard Singleton of 2007 Woodland Road pleaded guilty to one count of voluntary manslaughter in the death of Brandon A. Robinson.

    Singleton had been indicted on a charge of murder by an Orangeburg County grand jury. He pleaded guilty to a lesser charge this week before Orangeburg County Circuit Judge Ed Dickson.

    Dickson sentenced Singleton to 30 years in prison.

    After serving 25 years, Singleton will be eligible for probation for an additional five years.
    One year after tragic shooting, S.C. State University remembers Brandon Robinson

    Nearly a year after the shooting death of a football player for S.C. State University, school officials said they have been able to move past the pain of losing one of their own but will never forget him or the tragedy that took him.

    Tamara Hughes, the university’s vice president of student affairs, said the day that 20-year-old Brandon Robinson was shot and killed outside an on-campus dormitory was filled with disbelief.

    “It’s difficult,” Hughes said. “It was a really somber experience for (the students). It was just a day of sadness, and more disbelief than anything else, that something like this happened or could happen at our university.”
    Officials said the four charged with accessory after the fact of murder in connection with Robinson’s death do not have trial dates set either. They are: Raymone Sinclair Reed of Charleston; Darius Anthony Frazier of Cordova; and Shannon Deandre Davis and Kevin Alonzo Winningham, both of Orangeburg.
    I'm not sure if the other four individuals charged were ever sentenced.
