Suspects in Fort Mill robbery, shooting captured

Two teens suspected in the robbery and shooting of a man at a Fort Mill gas pump late Friday were in jail Saturday in Charlotte after a chase across state lines.

Travis D. Robinson of 2009 Campfire Trail in Clover and Quentin Lawrence Tobbie of Charlotte, both 18, each face an armed robbery with a deadly weapon charge, according to the warrants and Lt. Tim Smith of the York County Sheriff's Office.

Around 10:40 p.m. Friday, police found a Charlotte man with a gunshot wound at the Shell gas station at 802 Gold Hill Road in Fort Mill.

"This man was pumping gas," Smith said. "They pulled up to the gas pumps and tried to rob him. That's when they shot him."

The victim was shot once below his rib cage, Smith said.

The man was transported on Friday night to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, where he was listed in fair condition Saturday afternoon, a hospital spokeswoman said.

The men fled in a red car heading north toward Charlotte, according to Smith and reports from the Sheriff's Office.

"We chased them up into Charlotte," Smith said. "They ran from the car."

The car later was found near Nations Ford Road, Smith said. Officials did not release the caliber of the handgun or if the handgun was recovered. They also did not say how much money was taken from the victim.

Robinson and Tobbie remained in custody Saturday in Charlotte, according to the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office. Bond had not been set.
