CINCINNATI -- A man accused in a recent shooting led police on an early morning chase through Columbia Township that ended in a crash, according to officials.
At about 12:01 a.m., police attempted to stop a 2006 Acura RL, driven by Keion Robinson, 22, of Cincinnati. Officers say Robinson refused to stop and led them on a lengthy pursuit traveling on I-71 and through main roadways in several Cincinnati neighborhoods.
Robinson lost control of the vehicle in the 3200 block of Burnet Avenue and crashed into a brick retaining wall.
Investigators say Robinson and two passengers inside the vehicle fled on foot after the crash. All three were quickly caught by police and arrested. A fourth passenger did not exit the vehicle.
A .380 caliber semi-automatic pistol was recovered from Robinson, according to officials.
Robinson is charged with felony fleeing and eluding, carrying a concealed weapon, endangering children, obstructing official business, operating a motor vehicle without a valid driver's license and improper display.
He is also charged in a shooting that occurred on March 15 in the 1900 block of Westwood Northern Blvd. Police say Robinson got into an argument with the victim, produced a handgun and shot the man in his midsection.
A 17-year-old girl who also fled from police and who had an outstanding warrant for runaway was apprehended and charged with obstructing official business. She is being held at the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Facility.
A third passenger, Asia Palmer, 24, was cited for obstructing official business.
The fourth passenger in the vehicle was released without any charges.
Robinson is being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center until his arraignment set for 9 a.m. Thursday.
