Keishaun Green Sentenced to Natural Life for Murder of Convenience Store Clerk in 2013

PHOENIX—Keishaun Green (D.O.B. 06/26/1992) was sentenced today to Natural Life in the Arizona Department of Corrections for the 2013 murder of a convenience store clerk, Ibrahim Robles, Sr. He is also sentenced to a consecutive 25 year term for a murder he committed two weeks later.

On February 22, 2016, he was found guilty of first-degree murder and attempted armed robbery. Police said evidence found at the second shooting linked Green to the first shooting, and today’s sentence reflects his acceptance of a plea to second degree murder in that case.

“The defendant engaged in a brazen robbery attempt in which he callously murdered a completely innocent victim, and fled the scene.” said Bill Montgomery. “Today’s sentence is fitting for an individual with such an unrestrained propensity to commit violence in our community.”

Just after 11p.m. on May 31, 2013, the defendant entered a Valero gas station and convenience store at Gilbert and Broadway to commit an armed robbery. He removed a handgun from his pants, approached the clerk and demanded money. When the clerk did not react quickly enough, Green shot the victim in the stomach, killing him. He then fled the scene without taking any property.

Green committed another armed robbery and murder just two weeks later that resulted in the death of his drug dealer. The defendant had the same gun in his possession that was used in the convenience store murder.

On June 15, 2013, the defendant and his cousin planned to rob a marijuana dealer. During the transaction, Green produced a handgun to steal the marijuana. The dealer responded by producing his own gun and a shootout ensued, resulting in the fatal wounding of the marijuana dealer. The defendant picked up the victim’s gun and marijuana and fled. When he was apprehended a short time later, he had both guns and the marijuana in his backpack.
