BROWNSVILLE - Police do not yet have a suspect or a motive in a fatal triple shooting that took place in Brownsville Wednesday night.

Police have identified the victims as 21-year-old Michael Robinson, 18-year-old Delroy Gumbs and 16-year-old Brandon Graves. Authorities said the men where shot while sitting on the front steps of a Lott Avenue home around midnight.

Renette Robinson spent Thursday morning cleaning the bloody sidewalk where her nephew lost his life. Relatives said Robinson was working to move out of the neighborhood.

"My nephew was an ambitious boy. He wasn't no thug. He wasn't in a gang ... He was a single parent. He took care of his son, he had two jobs," Renette said.

Neighbors, who were stunned at the violence, set up a makeshift memorial of candles outside the home. Robinson leaves behind a 2-year-old son.
