14-year-old boy shoots his mother 10 times; She wanted to keep him off the streets

A troubled 14-year-old Detroit boy broke into his step dad’s bedroom, stole a 12 gauge shotgun and used it to fire 10 shots into his mother as she slept on a couch in the living room of her home.

Police say Joshua Smith killed his mother, Tamiko Robinson, 36, in a hail of gunfire just after midnight on Monday. Grieving family members have custody of Robinson’s surviving 5-year-old daughter — Joshua’s little sister — who witnessed the crime.

According to FOX Detroit News, Robinson’s fiance was also in the house at the time of the shooting. He leapt through a plate glass window to avoid being shot.

After the shooting, police caught the teenager driving around in his mother’s stolen car. He is being held at a juvenile detention center without bond. A judge will determine this weekend if Joshua will be tried as an adult.

Robinson, a dialysis patient, who was battling lupus, struggled to keep Joshua off the streets. Friends say Joshua was a good student, who was on the swim team at Kettering High School. But the lure of the streets and gang banging was too powerful for him to resist.

According to family members, Robinson was a strict disciplinarian, who used the belt unsparingly to keep young Joshua in line. But the boy grew up fast. By age 13, he stood 6-2, and outweighed his sickly mother by at least 50 lbs.

Joshua’s uncle, LeShaun Roberts, told Fox Detroit News that Joshua, 14, “wanted to hang with the big boys,” who were in their twenties.

With her health slowly declining, Robinson may have become a burden to her son, whom she depended on to help around the house.

“His mother was real sick and she called him every time she needed something, and he was tired of that,” explained Roberts. Joshua reportedly ran away from home. But his determined mother found him and brought him back.

Joshua’s cousin, Ceilcia Smith, told FOX Detroit that stories about Joshua gang banging and using drugs were exaggerated.

“Everything everybody’s been talking about — he was joy riding, he was smoking, he was in a gang — you all are lying. He’s been with me,” Smith told FOX 2 News.

Smith said Joshua spent four days playing video games at her house before the shooting. “He [was] in one spot sitting there crying hysterically,” Smith said.

“That’s the reason we called the police. He said somebody shot his mama. He didn’t say he did it. He said somebody did it.”

Smith added: “I know my cousin [isn’t] a straight up killer. He [isn’t a] monster.”

    This is RIDICULOUS!!! I mean seriously :wtf: And that cousin needs to shut up! News flash: HE SHOT HER! His mother was sick with Lupus (and it can be very debilitating) and all he wanted to dow as play video games and run the streets? And what kind of influence is the cousin to let this CHILD play video games FOUR DAYS STRAIGHT?!!! Wasn’t he supposed to be in school? Just ugh!!!!

    its been the end of days, since the beginning! If this is true, this little boy knew what he was doing and to shoot his mother 10 times, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, & 10 he should be tried as an adult. If you can make adult decisions you should be treated as such. When I was a child i thought as a child……

  • change

    :no:
    What type of video games was he playing for four days :thinking:

    I know it’s hard during these times to feel sympathy for the “accuser” I pray for him as well what a tormented soul to do such a thing :(

  • I Go There

    A 12 gauge dont have 10 shots… you gotta reload do fire off 10 shots.
    Unless she had a magazine loader. DAMN

  • WalkingKontradiction

    And him being whipped previously to me is the least of his problems! He, like many other kids and now adults today, have a problem with being told NO, and not always winning! So because she said you couldn’t gang bang or whatever it was you shot her???? And when you lose in a sports game you gonna shoot them too???

    Y’all have to excuse me, but this is becoming an epidemic. I go to professional school everyday with ADULTS who act like asses each and every time they lose or are told no! Grow a pair! Things can’t always go your way so your best bet is to learn how to deal with it and move on!

  • INTENSEMOCHA THE ANTAGONIST

    NICE TRY COUSIN, I’M CERTAIN THE FIANCE GAVE AN ACCOUNT AS TO WHO SHOT THE BOY’S MOTHER, HIM!!!!

    THERE ARE SO MANY TROUBLED, POSSESSED SOULS, ON EARTH-STAY PRAYED UP SERIOUSLY AND EVEN PRAY FOR THOSE WHO ARE POSSESSED!!!

    THIS IS TRULY A TRAGEDY-I DON’T CARE WHAT WAS GOING ON, THERE IS NO WAY ANYONE CAN RATIONALIZE HIS BEHAVIOR

    HE WANTED TO BE A GANGSTA, WELL HE’LL THE GET THE PROPER TRAINING IN PRISON, THE MEMORY OF KILL HIS MOTHER WILL SURELY TORTURE HIM FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE & THAT ALONE IS A DEATH SENTENCE

  • lovezoe

    For him to shoot his mama with a SHOTGUN 10 TIMES!!! No gun expert, but shotguns tae a lot of power, and he repeatedly put bullets into his mother. Even the gangbangers of gangbangers don’t kill they mama like that.

    So true! This hoodbooger on FB got a two-year old and she thought it was so cute that he said “Oh my God Becky look at her butt Tunchei” Now it is okay for us adults to partake in the foolery of hip-hop, but a two year old needs to be singing church songs (if you are religious) and nursery rhymes.

    I read about this story yesterday and they NEVER mentioned her using belt on him. They also said his sister and step dad was there and got away by climbing out a window.

  • Mamacita

    @NOLA Exactly! 10 times?!?!?! This was done out of pure anger and hatred. No respect!

    You shoot somebody 10 times at point blank range??? With a shot gun??? :blink: Your OWN sick mother at that???

  • LaiLai

    :no: This is so sad. Poor little girl who saw it all.

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Birdshu Bird

    I commented before I finished reading the story. Whoever the paper interviewed didn’t make mom sound so great. She’s beating his big azz on the regular and treating him like a manservant while her gun toting “fiance” lays around. I know Lupus is a dibilitating desease, but I’ve seen people lead active lives with it that don’t require them to be waited on hand and foot.

    This boy is no gem by any stretch, but if what they are saying about mama is true, maybe the boy thought this was the only way out for him.

  • WalkingKontradiction

    @ Change I understand where you are coming from because I am the same way. After seeing the way people carry on and just say WHATEVER WHENEVER, I never want to return to that frame of mind.

    All anger aside though, I feel really bad for the 5yr old and it’s probably a good thing the fiancee did jump out the windwo because if that little boy was angry enough to put 10shots into his mother, he wouldn’t have hesitated to do the same to him. At least now the little girl has one parental figure.

    ‘He just shot. Every chance he got a chance to shoot again, he shot again, and there’s just buckshot, holes everywhere.’

    The bullets left holes in the windows. Robinson’s five-year-old daughter and her fiance, named in reports as Chiko Lewis, were also in the home at the time and were forced to jump out of a low window to escape the gunfire.

    The little girl later asked relatives: ‘why would someone want to hurt mommy?’

    Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit if I heard shots being fired the last thing I’m going to do is run TOWARDS the gun shots. I’m sorry. I don’t blame the fiance for getting out. If both parents get shot and killed who’s going to take care of the daughter who has now lost her mon AND dad?

    Last comment… maybe this is better for little mama. Not LOSING her mama, which I cant imagine, but he dont sound like a peach of a brother IMO… :kona:

  • WalkingKontradiction

    @Bird I think that was Sandra’s spin on things. As someone else pointed out I haven’t seen the belt insinuation anywhere but here.

    As for lupus it all depends on which organs it is attacking and what state of health you are in. My grandmother whom I’ve never met died from it at 28, and my great-grandmother at 57 I believe. My great-grandmother was extremely debilitated by the disease as it attacked her kidneys(which is what it sounds like this woman was going through since she was on dialysis). It’s highly likely it was getting the best of her.

    Nature/Nurture at work here.

    I understand that the mother was very ill. I am also not excusing the young child. Neither of us know or realize the pressure that this young man was under. I know a lot of mothers who cannot even pour themselves a glass of water and they turn their children into mini-slaves. And this young man was whipped and look how much good it did? Please stop the flogging of children so they can grow up to be mentally and socially functioning adults!

  • lilmisscandid

    im so infuriated by this post. there are several things in this story that are just utterly ridiculous.

    1. Her fiance JUMPED THROUGH THE WINDOW?! Someone PLEASE tell me that he at least took the baby??! im sorry but i feel like he should have tried to defend his wife. call me crazy but thats what i think.

    2. If her son was too big for her to discipline, then why didnt the step-father step in?? once boys get a certain age/height/size they need a man to step to them.

    3. Where was her NIGGA while she was runnin the little boy to help her??! this is the man you are gettin ready to marry, youre fckin (im assumin) and you cant ask his ass to help you?! smh

    They need to try his ass as an adult smh. He IS a monster and he deserves to be treated like one!! ugh! im disguted!!

  • CHA CHA

    Im so thoroughly confused by this whole story….things that confused me

    1. How did he break in the dads room if he was in there sleeping, If so why didnt he stop him…question him…kick his ass!

    2. Didnt the step dad report it if he was there and jumped out the window

    3. Is the step dad now in custody for having the weapon? Was it licensed

    4. Is the cousin a crack head or just plain stupid

    5. How does said cousin justify him having his mothers car after the incident

    Maybe I need to go back and read again …either way this shyt is ridiculous… :no:

    Well where Im from that has never been an option, consideration, an idea or a thought. Now if were talking that illuminati business maybe…but aint no gang bangers about to tell you to kill your mother to earn your stripes… perhaps on TV but in my experience :nono: Now shooting at the the police and other people thats a whole nother story! Sad but a reality.

    CHA CHA says:

    but has anyone thought that this little boy shooting his mother like that was some sort of gang initiation(sp) for him? Since he wanted to gangbang and hang with the big boys

    Well where Im from that has never been an option, consideration, an idea or a thought. Now if were talking that illuminati business maybe…but aint no gang bangers about to tell you to kill your mother to earn your stripes… perhaps on TV but in my experience Now shooting at the the police and other people thats a whole nother story! Sad but a reality.

    Disclaimer: I am not in a gang, I just been raise by them and with them and around them my whole life. I know a little bit about the mentality.

    As a mother with small children he would not have that in my house to begin with, if there is a need for a gun in the house it should in a safe, possibly locked box/place. There is so many places you can hide a weapon of that magnitude. Step dad was probably not doing his job because sounds like the nucklehead was already very hot headed and busy and Stepdad was careless.

  • AllNYC

    At 14 years old, you do what your parents ask you to do. I don’t care if she had the entire Red Cross sitting in her living room. If she asks her son to do things from her, he should do it because she birthed him and took care of him. In addition, she was probably trying to keep him too busy to be in the streets.
    Then this callous disrespecting little ninja is riding around his dead mom’s car?! That doesn’t seem like he’s all broken up about his mom.
    The cousin is a moron. Who lets a kid sit around playing video games like that? My mom would let me play for an hour, maybe 2 if a friend was over. After that, she’d say y’all turn that mess off and do something else. It rots your brain and we were just playing Super Mario Bros. These games today are desensitizing children to violence.

    I thought you were talking about Ballreich’s. When my husband’s family visits from Cali, they make sure they stock up on those for home.

    I commented before I finished reading the story. Whoever the paper interviewed didn’t make mom sound so great. She’s beating his big azz on the regular and treating him like a manservant while her gun toting “fiance” lays around. I know Lupus is a dibilitating desease, but I’ve seen people lead active lives with it that don’t require them to be waited on hand and foot.

    This boy is no gem by any stretch, but if what they are saying about mama is true, maybe the boy thought this was the only way out for him.

    This is so sad and his family members are making excuses for him. I couldn’t believe they were on the news taking up for him last night. The problem with children right now are the excuses adults make for them. I see it every single day because of my profession. Unfortunately, this young man was lost to the streets and his mother was only trying to save him. I do not believe her method of discipline led him down this path. My parents were strict disciplinarians and I thank them for it now.

    that is AWFUL, but DAMN 13 and 6’2??????? something wasn’t right with that boy from the start, maybe a hormonal imbalance? but whatever the case it’s a cryin shame he felt the need to KILL his sick mother
