Two charged in fatal shooting at Broad and Lehigh

Two men have been charged in the shooting homicide of a man Friday at Broad Street and Lehigh Avenue.

Cops announced Thursday that earlier this week, they arrested Raheem Robinson, 25, of Mole Street near Cumberland and Jowell Fauntleroy, 23, of Warnock Street near Rockland. Robinson and Fauntleroy are charged with murder, conspiracy, violation of the Uniform Firearms Act and related offenses for allegedly shooting 28-year-old Robert White to death as he stood near a bus stop on Broad Street late Friday afternoon.

White was taken to Temple University Hospital after he was shot, but succumbed to injuries from being shot several times in the chest at 5:05 p.m., cops said.

It’s unclear what motivated White’s killing.
