Default Negro Good After Attacking Senior - black was stalking and threatening his ex mud-shark

DAVE SCHERBENCO / THE CITIZENS’ VOICE FILE Robert Hood of Wilkes-Barre was fatally gunned down at 320 Stanton St. in Wilkes-Barre on June 24, 2016. Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis ruled the shooting a justifiable homicide on Wednesday.

WILKES-BARRE — Authorities will not file charges in the fatal shooting of a 34-year-old man on Stanton Street last June.

The parents of Robert Hood vowed to continue fighting after authorities ruled the fatal shooting of their son a justifiable homicide.

“I kind of knew this was going to be the outcome,” said Kevin Prosser of Upper Darby, Hood’s father. “It was just a kick in the stomach for it to actually come to fruition. Our next step is to see if there’s anything we can do.”

After months of uncertainty and waiting for charges or answers, Prosser and Hood’s mother, Maria Hood-Prosser, both said they have no intention of letting their search for justice for their son end with the ruling announced by Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis on Wednesday.

Hood died after a shooting at 320 Stanton St. in Wilkes-Barre on June 24. The coroner ruled his death a homicide a few days later.

Thomas Romanowski, 67, owned the home at 320 Stanton St. and lived there with Jacqueline Newton, (mudshark) 32, who has a child with Romanowski’s son and was Hood’s estranged ex-lover at the time of the shooting.

According to the district attorney’s office, a man at 320 Stanton St. shot Hood after Hood attacked and cut him “with a shiny object.” The man drew a firearm and fired several times, striking Hood. Hood then fled into the yard and “succumbed to his injuries.”

The release states Salavantis has ruled “the use of force by the male justified.”

The release does not specifically identify Romanowski, but describes previous incidents between Hood, Romanowski and Newton as an “extensive history resulting” in the shooting death of Hood.

Court documents indicate Hood previously harassed Romanowski and Newton for a period of 18 months — police alleged Hood broke into the Stanton Street home and assaulted them in December 2014.

In November 2015, Hood beat Newton unconscious by slamming her head off the pavement then tried to drag her away, according to arrest papers and the district attorney’s office.

Romanowski shot and wounded Hood then, police said.


Romanowski was not charged in that incident, but Hood was charged with assault, disorderly conduct and harassment.

The fatal shooting occurred days after Hood posted bail on those charges, the district attorney’s office said.


According to the release, investigators found Hood had been contacting Newton and “threatening to kill her, the male with whom she was living and himself” before the night of the fatal shooting.

Authorities said Hood broke into 320 Stanton St. through a rear window that night and made similar threats when Newton returned to the home.

Hood allegedly left the residence after Romanowski returned home, but came back a few minutes later. Authorities said Hood attacked Romanowski, leading Romanowski to draw his gun and fire several times, ultimately killing Hood.

Informed by a reporter of the ruling on Wednesday, Hood-Prosser said in the absence of criminal charges, she plans to file a wrongful death lawsuit against Romanowski.

“Even though he’s not being charged, he still has my son’s blood on his hands,” Hood-Prosser said. “He has to live with that. I hope each time he closes his eyes to go to sleep he sees my son’s face. That’s what I see when I go to sleep.”

Romanowski did not return a request for comment on Wednesday. He has not denied firing the fatal shots during previous attempts by reporters to speak with him.

Hood-Prosser said the months of waiting for charges or a ruling in her son’s death took a toll.

“It’s been hard,” she said. “I had stopped calling the detective around Christmas time ... I wasn’t getting answers.”

Prosser said he felt “stunned” when informed of the district attorney’s ruling.

“At least there’s no more speculation,” he said. “We figured they would just keep it open forever.”
