Details surrounding the shooting of Uroy ‘Laybay’ Robinson were sketchy on Wednesday but SEARCHLIGHT learned he was treated and released from the hospital.

Robinson was the star witness in the murder case of Lloyd ‘Lazo’ Samuel, who died of gunshot wounds to the head in December 2007.

Redemption Sharpes residents Che ‘Ragga’ Bute, 29, and Azari ‘Heffer’ Ash, 23, were sentenced to life imprisonment on July 13, 2012 for Samuel’s murder.

Robinson had told the court that he was present when Ash and Bute plotted to kill Samuel.

Up to press time, no arrests were made in connection with Robinson’s shooting.(KW)
