Detroit Man Convicted of Murdering Two Gay Men, Trans Woman

Devon Robinson

A Detroit man has been convicted of murdering two gay men and a transgender woman at a house party last year.

Devon Kareem Robinson, 19, was convicted Tuesday of first-degree premeditated murder, assault with intent to murder, and felony firearm use, The Detroit News reports.

The victims, gay men Alunte Davis, 21, and Timothy Blancher, 20, and trans woman Paris Cameron, 20, were shot to death May 25 at a party in a home on Detroit’s east side. Prosecutors said the crime was motivated by their identity.

Two other people were shot but survived. In a pretrial examination in November, Clifton Keys, a friend of the victims, testified about the brutality of the crime, saying blood seeped through the house’s walls, according to the News.

Robinson was convicted in a jury trial in Wayne County Circuit Court. He will be sentenced April 13 and faces a maximum penalty of life in prison without possibility of parole.
