Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo and Camden County Police Chief Scott Thomson reported three men have been arraigned for their roles in a May 18th homicide in the city.
Superior Court Judge Edward J. McBride Jr. ordered Raquan Handon, 18, of Camden, Aaron Swann, 19, of Pennsauken and Ashan Thomas, 19, of Pennsauken held on $2,000,000 cash or bond bail Tuesday morning in the death of 19-year-old Terron L. Phillips of Camden.
On Monday, a 16-year-old Merchantville male was also charged with felony murder for his role in the death of Phillips.
Camden County Police found Phillips fatally shot on the 3500 block of Pierce Street in Camden on May 18. Officers had responded to the area at approximately 1:32 a.m. in reference to a single ShotSpotter activation for a gunshot. Phillips was transported to Cooper University Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased at approximately 1:45 a.m.
It is alleged all four defendants were participating in the robbery of Phillips when he was shot by the juvenile suspect.
All four defendants have been charged with additional charges for two armed robberies committed shortly before the homicide.
Handon, Swann and Thomas are being held at the Camden County Jail. The juvenile suspect was already being held at a juvenile detention facility on unrelated charges.
All persons charged with crimes are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
