Deputy Robinson was shot and killed during a traffic stop of a suspected armed robber. He was shot once in the right arm and once behind his right ear. The suspect was arrested approximately three hours later and was tried in a different jurisdiction due to a change in venue.

The suspect was found guilty of all charges in February 1997 and sentenced to death. He was executed by lethal injection on December 9, 2014.

Deputy Robinson and his best friend, and fellow officer, had discussed being killed in the line of duty only days before. A memorial to Deputy Robinson was dedicated on December 17, 1996, in front of the Baldwin County Courthouse. Deputy Robinson is survived by his parents and two brothers.

21 years ago, I became friends with Will when I worked as a nurse in the ER at Oconee Regional. I was on duty the night Will was brought in. To this day, Will's injury and death has been the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with as a nurse. I will always remember Will's smile and sense of humor, and his professionalism as a deputy whenever we needed law enforcement assistance in the ER. He is missed and I will never forget.
