A teen and a young man have been charged with murder in an April 11 shooting across the street from Overbrook High School that left a student from the school dead.

Jaquan Jordan, 20, of Berks Street near 21st in North Philadelphia, was arrested immediately after the shooting that killed Overbrook student Bernard Scott, 17, and wounded two others.

Stanley Postell, of 60th Street near Lansdowne Avenue in Overbrook, was also wounded in the shooting and was determined to be one of the shooters, police said.

Charges for both Postell and Jordan have been upgraded to murder and related offenses, police said Monday.

A second 17-year-old boy who was wounded in the shooting survived his injuries, according to investigators.
