Jamil Kaine, 23, was working at a store inside the MTA bus station when Stand “Face” Robinson, 38, allegedly shot and killed him around 12:15 p.m. Thursday.
A police officer who heard the gunshots followed Robinson to a nearby church, where he tried to hide. Detectives who arrived found Robinson hiding between cars and located a gun nearby, police said.
“This situation was immediately and swiftly handled by Flint police officers,” said Flint Police Chief Terence Green.
Robinson is charged with first-degree murder, felon in possession of a firearm, felon in possession of ammunition, carrying a concealed weapon and three counts of felony firearm. He is charged as a fourth-offense habitual offender.
“Every life lost is a blow to our entire community,” Flint Mayor Sheldon Neely said. “The city of Flint remains under a gun violence emergency, allowing us to proactively fight gun violence and harness more resources for public safety.”
