— Franklin County prosecutors said Thursday that they plan to seek the death penalty against a man accused of killing three people in Louisburg in March.

Darius Revel Robinson, 24, of 124 Southwood Drive, is charged with three counts of murder in the March 26 shooting deaths of 36-year-old Keisha Livingston, 18-year old Shamare Malik Harris and 23-year-old Diana Marie Edgerton in a home at 119 Harris St.

A fourth person survived the shooting and was able to identify Robinson as the gunman, authorities said.

Robinson was arrested a week later in Suffolk, Va.

Investigators haven’t discussed the motive behind the shooting, but they said Robinson, a known gang member, knew at least one of the victims.
