More than two years after the murder of a Bristol Borough man, charges have been filed against three suspects.
20-year-old Robert Colter III was standing on his front porch on Bath Street in Bristol Borough after dinner on February 16, 2016. At around 8 p.m., he was struck in the head by a bullet fired from down the street..
Colter was an aspiring nurse and not the intended target, according to the Bristol Borough Police. He was taken to Aria-Torresdale Hospital, now Jefferson-Torresdale, before passing away from the injury the next day.
With only surveillance video and witness reports of a red compact car leaving the scene, detectives worked tirelessly to investigate the case.
Now, 29-year-old Dwayne J. Lynch, 27-year-old Rodney N. Beaty, and 29-yea-old Jaquan N. Wilkerson are held in correctional facilities on charges of Criminal Homicide and Conspiracy to commit Criminal Homicide.
The Bristol Borough Police Department thanked the Bucks County Detectives and the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office for assisting in the investigation.
