Last Suspect Arrested In March Murder Case

POTTSTOWN PA – Derrick Goins, the last of four men facing first-degree murder and related charges in an alleged shooting death during March in Pottstown, was arrested Friday (Sept. 20, 2019) after being located in Upper Pottsgrove Township.

Investigators claim he is among those who murdered Keith Robinson, also of the borough, during the late evening hours of March 30. Police found Robinson dead of multiple gunshot wounds in his vehicle at the corner of Walnut Street and York Street.

Goins, 26, a Pottstown resident, was taken into custody by Montgomery County Detectives, and Pottstown and Upper Pottsgrove police.  He was arraigned before Magisterial District Justice Jay S. Friedenberg, and jailed at the county facility in Eagleville PA.

Similarly charged and already in custody are co-defendants Kyshan Brinkley, 23; Jacquan Lee, 26; and Elijah Davis, 18, all of Pottstown. Brinkley and Lee were arrested Aug. 1; Davis on Sept. 6.

The circumstances of Goins’ apprehension were not offered in a statement jointly issued by county District Attorney Kevin Steele, Pottstown Borough Police Chief Michael Markovich, and Upper Pottsgrove Chief James Fisher. They also did not disclose how much, if any, reward money publicly offered by the district attorney’s office was paid for information leading to the capture of Davis and Goins.

A preliminary hearing for Goins is scheduled for Oct. 3 at 9:30 a.m. in the Pottstown courtroom of Magisterial District Justice Scott T. Palladino. The case will be prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Kelly Lloyd and Lindsey Mills.
