UPDATE: Woman pleads guilty in pizza store shooting

DANVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ) – A woman investigators say was the getaway driver in a shooting and robbery at a Domino’s on Fourth Street in Danville in 2014, pleaded guilty on Thursday to an amended charge in the case, according to Boyle Circuit Court.

27-year old Robin Adams, of Danville, pleaded guilty to facilitation to commit robbery and assault, according to court records. Both charges carry a recommended sentence of five-years.

She is scheduled to be sentenced in April. She could also testify against the other defendants in the case.

On September 15, 2014, police say Patrick Brand’s cell phone was used to call-in a fake pizza order to get the delivery driver to leave the store, leaving clerk Zoe Reed alone in the business. Adams told investigators that she and Brand, who’s also from Danville, waited outside in the car while Rico Penix and 16-year old Nathaniel Sinclair Davis, both of Harrodsburg, went in to rob the business of cash.

During the robbery, clerk Zoe Reed was shot in the stomach. Her injuries were life-threatening, but she did survive. She picked Davis out of a police photo lineup as the “possible shooter,” according to investigators.

Even though Davis was only 16-years old at the time of the reported crime, he is being treated as an adult by the courts. Davis, Penix, Brand and Adams were all arrested and charged with robbery and assault. They all initially pleaded not guilty to all charges.

A fifth person was charged in the case. Police accuse Seth Frazier of helping hide one of the suspect’s after the crime.

The cases against the other defendants haven’t been resolved.
