“We don’t know if it was a drive-by, we don’t know if someone walked up,” Robinson’s aunt, Candice Fleming, said. “I’ve been out here all night long, just waiting for answers.”

Fleming told Local 10 News reporter Trent Kelly that Robinson was shot while sitting in her car. She said she heard about 50 gunshots fired in rapid succession.

“I was home last night. (It) sounded Iike we were in Afghanistan in a war,” Fleming said.

According to the victim’s aunt, Robinson didn’t live at the location where she was killed but was in the area visiting a friend.

“She was a well-loved person. She always had a smile on her face,” Fleming said.

Robinson is survived by her 5-year-old son and other family members.

“It’s hard right now,” Fleming said. “Our brother is going through a hard time. Her buried my nephew a couple years ago, now he has to bury his daughter.”

Anyone with further information about the shooting is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
