Shooting suspect's lawyer: My client was babysitting

and said his client was with his girlfriend at the time of the incident.

Suspect Tyrone Robinson turned himself in to police early Friday morning after family members said they heard his name on the news. Robinson was wanted for the shooting of a 19-year-old man, who collapsed at the intersection of Finney Lane and Stillwater Avenue Thursday night.

Attorney Lindy Urso said Robinson couldn?t have been the shooter because he and his girlfriend were babysitting her brother at the time.

?They were babysitting her 8-year-old brother,? Urso says. ?I don?t want to get the 8-year-old brother involved and put him through something like this, but [Robinson] was present with him I believe until 11:00 and this thing supposedly happened around 10, 10:30.?

Robinson is being held on $1 million bond. There is no word on shooting victim?s condition.
