An 18-year-old Philadelphia youth was charged today with attempted murder in connection with two robberies, including one brazen shooting in a SEPTA concourse.
Shawn Walker, of Anchor Street in Crescentville, is being held on $800,000 bail. He's also charged with aggravated assault, conspiracy, and robbery, according to the District Attorney's Office.
The two robberies occurred earlier this month.
Police found Walker hiding in a relative's house in East Frankford after the latest alleged offense at 7:35 p.m., Oct. 7.
In that robbery, authorities said Walker shot a 53-year-old man in his hip and robbed him inside the SEPTA Broad Street Line concourse on Broad Street near Glenwood Avenue in North Philadelphia.
