U.S. Marshals and Norfolk Police Capture Homicide Suspect
Norfolk, VA - The suspect wanted for shooting a man to death in Norfolk over the weekend has been arrested. Malcolm Jamal Robinson, 25, was captured yesterday by U.S. Marshals and Norfolk police officers.

Early Saturday morning, Norfolk police responded to a shooting in the 1800 block of Greenleaf Drive. A male victim was found suffering from gunshot wounds. The victim was transported to the hospital and eventually died as a result of the shooting. Norfolk Police Department identified Robinson as the suspect in the shooting and he was charged with murder and use of firearm in commission of a felony. The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force was asked for assistance in locating and apprehending Robinson.

Within 48 hours of the shooting, the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force quickly developed a good lead on Robinson’s location. Around 12:30 p.m. yesterday, U.S. Marshals and Norfolk police officers took Robinson into custody without incident inside of a residence in the 800 block of Bagnall Road.
Robinson is being held at Norfolk City Jail.

The U.S. Marshals-led Fugitive Task Force consists of law enforcement officers from the U.S. Marshals, Chesapeake Sheriff’s Office, Newport News Police Department, Portsmouth Police Department and Norfolk Police Department. The main objective of the task force is to seek out and arrest violent offenders with outstanding federal and state warrants.

The U.S. Marshals Service, America’s first federal law enforcement agency, arrested more than 33,300 federal fugitives, 66,300 state and local fugitives and 11,700 sex offenders in 2015. Our investigative network and capabilities allow for the unique ability to track and apprehend any fugitive who attempts to evade police capture, anywhere in the country.
