During an interview with detectives, 26-year-old Devon Robinson admitted to his role in the September 23 shooting death of Mario Copeland.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A 26-year-old man has been charged with murder after court records say he admitted to his role in the fatal shooting of a 38-year-old man in the Linden area last month.

Devon Robinson, who was first identified as a person of interest, turned himself in to the Columbus Police Department on Tuesday on a parole violation warrant, according to Franklin County Municipal Court documents. During an interview with detectives, he admitted his role in the shooting of Mario Copeland on September 23.

Copeland was found with a gunshot wound in the 1200 block of East Hudson Street. He was taken to Grant Medical Center, where he died a short time later, making his death the 102nd homicide in Columbus this year.

Copeland was standing in an alley just south of East Hudson Street when he was confronted by a group of men, police said. One of the men pulled out a gun and shot Copeland several times. The group then fled the scene.

According to court records, surveillance video showed Robinson was the one who shot Copeland multiple times.

Robinson is charged with one count of murder and was ordered held on $1 million bail when he appeared in Franklin County Municipal Court Wednesday morning. His next trial is scheduled for October 14.

Earlier this week, police warrants issued for the arrest of Rayshawn Rogers, 31, Christian Capers, 34, and Damon Capers, 35, in connection with Copeland’s death.

According to police, Copeland’s family and friends believe he sold the drugs to Letasha Streeter, which led to her overdose death. Streeter is a possible relative of Rogers.

In addition, police are asking for the public’s help in identifying two other persons of interest who detectives would like to interview in connection with Copeland’s death.

Police are asking anyone who was present at the overdose involving Streeter or has information about the fatal shooting to contact the Columbus Police Homicide Unit at 614-645-4730 or the Central Ohio Crime Squad at 614-461- TIPS (8477).
