VIDEO: Murder Suspect Goes for Gun in Closed Cell
The suspect yelled, "Kill me!" six times before he was subduedBy Calibre Press | Jun 24, 2016
A man arrested on a murder charge Tuesday tried to grab a Cincinnati Police officer’s gun from its holster while being processed at the Criminal Investigation Section.
Thomas Robinson, 23, is accused of shooting 17-year-old Joseph Reno Armstrong Jr. on June 17.
In surveillance footage from inside an interview room, an officer is working to change Robinson’s handcuffs when the suspect glances at the gun then makes his move, briefly getting his hands on the weapon.
As officers work to restrain him, you can hear Robinson yell “Kill Me” six times during the battle for the gun.
The officer is able to keep both hands on his holster as two other cops come in to help. The fight for the weapon lasted about 13 seconds before police forced Robinson to the ground with a stun gun.
It took less than one second for Robinson to get his hand from a resting position and onto the officer’s sidearm. Then it takes about one second for that officer react and get both hands on his weapon.
legal analyst Mike Allen said Robinson will be facing at least an assault to a police officer charge. Allen said that because you can see Robinson go for the gun, a prosecutor could possibly charge Robinson with attempted murder.
