According to The Denver Post, Allen Robinson faces charges of first degree murder for the death of Francisco Suarez, who was shot multiple times early Sunday morning after the Mayweather vs. Cotto fight. To clarify though, the shooting was nowhere near the MGM Grand; it took place in Arizona while the man was arrested in Colorado. 

According to the report, Allen Robinson and another man, Robert Brown, went to a Circle K to buy some alcohol. The clerk turned them away and refused to sell them alcohol because he thought they were too drunk.

Robinson and Brown then approached Suarez and a 19-year-old friend and asked the underage men if they could buy them some alcohol. They started talking and their conversation eventually led to the Mayweather vs. Cotto fight that happened just hours earlier. 

According to CBS5 in Phoenix, Suarez told Robinson that he wasn't a Mayweather fan and it upset Robinson. As the both parties left the store in their vehicles, Robinson fired shots off at Suarez's car a short distance from the Circle K store, killing him. 

Brown turned himself into authorities on Monday with Robinson being arrested in Colorado the next day.

At the time of his arrest, Robinson was traveling with three other people, a woman and two children aged 11 and 3.

The woman, Susan Gonzalez, is currently being held without bond in the Garfield County Jail for conspiracy charges. This is most likely due to her not turning Robinson in with knowledge of his murder.
