Sheriff Newell Normand reports, this evening around 5:42 PM, our officers responded to a 911 call of a subject shot on Alex Kornman Drive in Harvey. Responding officers searched the area and were unable to locate a victim.
Additional officers proceeded to West Jefferson Medical Center in order to determine if anyone arrived at the hospital with a gunshot wound. At approximately 5:52 PM, it was learned that a 14-year-old male victim arrived at WJMC by private conveyance suffering from a gunshot wound to the stomach. The victim, identified as Trennen Robinson, B/M of 4012 South Woodbine St. in Harvey, was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.
While canvassing the area of the 2400 block of Alex Kornman, our officers located a witness who advised they heard one gunshot in the upstairs apartment of 2449 Alex Kornman. Homicide detectives located a .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun in an upstairs bedroom of apartment A. A single .40 caliber spent shell casing and a live .40 caliber round were located in that same bedroom.
Homicide detectives are questioning a 16 year-old male subject who claims he was with the victim when the shooting occurred. He told investigators they were both in the upstairs bedroom of the apartment when Robinson began handling a handgun when it discharged, striking Robinson in the stomach.
