Louisburg, N.C. — The Franklin County Sheriff's Office was continuing its search Monday for a man wanted in connection with a triple homicide that happened Saturday at a home in Louisburg.
Darius R. Robinson, of 124 Southwood Drive, is wanted for murder in the shooting deaths of 36-year-old Keisha Livingston, 18-year old Shamare Malik Harris and 23-year-old Diana Marie Edgerton.
According to authorities, a fourth person survived the shooting at 119 Harris Road and was able to provide police with Robinson's name.
Franklin County officials searched a home belonging to Mosheco Williams early Monday looking for Robinson and said they've had credible leads about his location since Saturday.
Williams said she doesn’t know Robinson and described the middle-of-the-night search as frightening.
“We was asked to come out with our hands up,” she said of the 3 a.m. search.
Robinson was just released from prison five months ago and has served time for assault and robbery. A spokesman for the sheriff’s office said Robinson has killed once and they worry he would do it again.
“He is considered extremely, extremely dangerous and we want him behind bars where he belongs for this horrific crime,” said Franklin County Sheriff’s Office Chief Terry Wright. “He has already allegedly killed three victims and we ask you not to approach him.”
Investigators won’t discuss the motive behind Friday’s shooting, but said Robinson, a known gang member, knew at least one of the victims.
On Sunday, Gov. Pat McCrory announced that the state is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to Robinson's arrest and conviction. Robinson is charged with three counts of first-degree murder.
“We’ve been getting a lot of information and we’ve actively pursued each and every lead,” Wright said. “We have three homicide victims. We owe it to the families who are going through an emotional, terrible, tragic event. We owe it to the families to bring him to justice.”
The State Bureau of Investigation and FBI are also assisting in the search for Robinson. Anyone with information is asked to call the Franklin County sheriff's Office at 919-496-7867.
