FARMINGTON — Farmington police are seeking a 23-year-old man accused last week of shooting at a residence in the 2000 block of East 10th Street.

Terence Robins was charged Wednesday in Farmington Magistrate Court with shooting at an occupied building and possession of a firearm by a felon, both fourth-degree felonies.

Robins' bond has been set at $25,000, according to court records.

According to the arrest warrant, Farmington police officers were dispatched at approximately 12:25 p.m. April 1 to a house at 2332 E. 10th Street after receiving reports of a drive-by shooting.

Witnesses at the scene told officers that Robins fired a single shot at the residence with a handgun and then fled the scene in a black SUV driven by another man. A resident not identified in the warrant told police that he got into an argument with Robins, with whom he used to live, before Robins shot at the house.

Detectives located a .380-caliber shell casing from the area where Robins was standing when he allegedly fired the shot, but no damage was found to the residence. Several neighbors also told police they heard a loud bang around the time the shot was allegedly fired, according to the warrant.

Robins is also being sought on a warrant for failing to comply with the conditions of his probation in a 2013 armed robbery case, according to court records.

Anyone with information regarding Robins' whereabouts can contact the Farmington police detectives division at 505-599-1005.
