PHILADELPHIA, PA – On January 20, 17-year-old Dwayne Canty was walking to a store to buy food for his mother, just moments after he had cashed a paycheck. Investigators said that’s when a killer ambushed him, shooting him multiple times and stealing the money.

It happened on the southwest corner of Newkirk Street and Susquehanna Avenue in the city’s Strawberry Mansion section.

The teen’s neighbor, 19-year-old Isaiah Lassiter, of the 2100 block of N. Newkirk Street, was arrested and charged with murder, conspiracy to commit murder, robbery and violations of the Uniform Firearms Act. More on myFoxPhilly.com
