Arrest made in duplex shooting that killed Rock Hill mother, police say

ROCK HILL, S.C. — Officers from the Rock Hill and Charlotte-Mecklenburg police departments have identified and arrested the suspect who they believed killed a mother of four in Rock Hill last month.

On March 25, 33-year-old Jennifer Robinson was shot outside of a duplex on Friedheim Road. Robinson was taken to a hospital where she died, police said.

Police had said they were told a dark-colored sedan may have been involved in the shooting. Lt. Michael Chavis added that it was “very possible that this is a shooting that took place from that vehicle.”

Officers were able to identify Brenden Demarkus Johnson, a 25-year-old from Rock Hill, as the suspect in the shooting. After getting a warrant, officers found and arrested Johnson Wednesday in Charlotte.

Hopkins is currently being held at the Mecklenburg County Detention Center, waiting for extradition to South Carolina.

Police have still not released the motive behind the shooting.

Channel 9′s Tina Terry met with Robinson’s family shortly after the incident. Her sister-in-law Valencia Fraizer described Robinson as a kindhearted person.

“She’s a loving caring person we all love her, there is not one person who she didn’t look out for,” Fraizer told Terry.

To help her family, a friend of Robinson’s started a Gofundme page for donations.
