PERKASIE, Pa. (CBS) — A robbery attempt turned deadly in Bucks County and now three teenagers have been charged as adults for the murder of a high school football star turned drug dealer.
The shooting happened around 12:30 a.m. Saturday in Kulp Memorial Park in Perkasie.
In prison, held without bail, 15-year-old Harrison Moss of Wyncote and 16-year-old boys Noah Strickland and Christopher Pavack of Perkasie.
“[They] Decided that they wanted to rob a drug dealer to make some easy money,” said Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub. “He decided not to cooperate and he paid with his life.”
Weintraub says that dealer, who ended up being shot, was 19-year-old Iziah Lewis.
Lewis was a Sellersville native and a recent graduate of Pennridge High School where he played football. The school will have crisis counselors for students and staff this week.
All three teens have been charged with Criminal Homicide, Robbery and other offenses.
Weintraub says a fourth person involved, believed to be a getaway driver, has not been charged yet.
