A Woodbridge man was arrested in connection with the fatal shooting outside the Babylon Café in Woodbridge on March 25, in which a 25-year-old man from Stafford was killed.
The police investigation revealed that the victim Kalin Javon Robinson was shot dead when he left the Babylon Café shortly after midnight on Thursday, March 25th. There were no other injuries, and the incident was classified as non-random, according to 1st Sgt. Jonathan Perok, Prince William County Police Secretary.
Clark is being held out of bond pending a trial that has not been made public.
Robinson’s death marks Prince William County’s third murder in 2021, Perok said.
Prince William County Police Chief Peter Newsham on Friday suspended permission to live entertainment at the Babylon Cafe in response to the fatal gunfire and previous serious incidents that occurred outside the nightclub at 3081 Golansky Blvd., Woodbridge in recent months , have taken place.
In a tweet, police said Newsham took the move because of security concerns in the community and pending a review of the nightclub’s security plan.

Two murders and at least one other shooting occurred in the nightclub parking lot last year.
On January 23, a 27-year-old man was shot dead in an altercation outside the Babylon Café around 9:25 p.m. that evening. James Lawrence Gregory, 34, of Dumfries, was arrested on March 19 by the US Marshal’s fugitive task force in connection with the shooting, police said.
The victim survived the gunshot wounds, but police have not released details of the extent of his injuries.
Last Christmas Eve, the police were called to the club to investigate the shots of a truck in the parking lot. At the time, a restaurant worker told police that he saw a person shoot a lap in the air before driving off in a large white truck.
There were no injuries in the incident, but the suspect’s truck hit an unoccupied vehicle in the parking lot as it pulled out, police said.
On July 24th, 2020, Charlie Davis III, 28, of Dumfries, was killed in a knife stab outside the club. Police have since arrested and charged a Woodbridge man in connection with the incident.
Attempts to reach the Babylon Cafe for comment on Saturday March 25th were not immediately successful.
