Manhunt continues for TARC bus shooting suspects

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Police on Friday continued their manhunt for killers who gunned down a teenager on a TARC bus.

In a story you'll see only on WDRB, one man who knows a suspect well is pleading for him for come forward.  Sean Dour says, "I knew, I knew it. It hit me like a ton of bricks, it was very shocking."

The surveillance photos after a murder on board a TARC bus were a bit hazy, but when Dour saw the news Monday night, one face was crystal clear:  "Never would I think this would be the case. Like I said, he was good to my daughter."

Dour says Martin Keehn is his daughter's ex-boyfriend, lived in their Bashford Manor home for two years, and is the father of one of his grandchildren: "I mean this kid had manners, helped out around the house all the time."

But that was in 2009.  Fast forward to Thursday and Keehn and Jeffrey Kingdon are indicted for a murder that happened less than a mile away from that home, after 17-year-old Rico Robinson, Jr was killed by a gunshot wound to the head.  Dour says the two men are brothers.

U.S. Marshals are now in on the search for them.  Officers interviewed staff Friday at Oxmoor Mazda.  WDRB News has been told Keehn worked there until he was fired about six weeks ago for washing a white Camaro on the company's time. That same vehicle would ultimately be his getaway car.

Dour says Keehn keeps in contact with the family, but hasn't heard from him since the shooting:  "As long as I've known Martin -- that's him ducking -- I know, that's him scared."

He makes no excuse for the crime, saying, "I believe he was there, obviously he was there, and what he did if he had any involvement is absolutely horrid and he needs to pay for what he has done."

He wants Keehn to come forward:  "You just need to make it right. You need to. This just isn't you."

Services are set for Rico Robinson, Jr.   The visitation will take place from 10:00 to 1:00 Saturday with the funeral to follow at West End Baptist Church in Louisville.
