MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – Tuesday morning, loved ones of Lamorris Robinson, shot and killed in Memphis last week, were joined by Memphis attorney Howard Manis.

The mother of Robinson’s two young children didn’t speak tothe media but fought tears as Manis suggested a civil lawsuit would likely befiled as he closely monitors the criminal proceedings in the case.

Last week, authorities said Charles Kalb of Memphis shot and killed Robinson in the back as Robinson reportedly stole a chainsaw from Mid-South Small Engines.

Police said Robinson, unarmed, was running from the scenewhen Kalb pulled out a sawed-off shotgun and fired several times, hittingRobinson in the back.

Kalb was arrested, charged with first-degree murder, andlater released on a $1 million bond after appearing in court last week.  

Manis said Robinson had spent time in prison and wasrecently released and that a person has no right to kill when there is nophysical threat present.

We’ve reached out Kalb’s attorney and expect a responsesometime Tuesday afternoon after that attorney finishes his commitments incourt.
