Justice for Danny: Mom says her son died a hero

SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - 7-year-old Justice Robinson wrote a letter to express how she feels about the passing of her uncle Daniel "Danny" Robinson.

"My Uncle Danny was so brave to protect the lady," said Robinson.

Robinson's mother Linda Amiano said her son died a hero.

"He was a great human being, I mean he would give the world to anybody, he'd do anything for anybody," said Amiano.

Last Sunday the 24-year-old was sitting at home in Knightsville, when three armed men kicked down the front door. According to the Dorchester County Coroner the trio shot Robinson and his roommate multiple times. Robinson's 55-year-old roommate lived to tell neighbors that he jumped in front of one of the gunman trying to save her.

"She did call and she said how sorry she was that this happened to my son. She just kept repeating I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry," said Amiano.

Amiano said her youngest son died the way he lived trying to help others. She said that will be his legacy. She said officers didn't need to tell her he died saving someone else.

"I knew it, cause even in life he was like that. Even if it was these guys that did a senseless cowardly thing to my son. He would have been there for them too, if they needed it," said Amiano.

Amiano said she wants there to be justice for her son and hopes no one else will have to deal with the pain her family is experiencing now. She said Danny would want peace.

Friends of Danny Robinson organized a public memorial for him next Monday, at the Shield of Faith Church in Hanahan. The memorial will begin at 5 p.m. followed by the funeral at 6 p.m.
