November 20, 2019 GMT

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A teenage girl has been charged with murder and other counts in the shooting death of a man killed last year during a robbery at a Pittsburgh apartment.

City authorities say the 17-year-old girl lured 24-year-old Julian Carpenter to the apartment where he was killed July 2. He died at a hospital on Nov. 4, nearly four months after the shooting.

The alleged shooter, 20-year-old Onaje Dickinson, was shot and killed two weeks after the robbery by a police officer investigating a similar robbery in Penn Hills.

The teen, who authorities say was a friend of Carpenter’s, is charged with homicide, criminal conspiracy and criminal use of a phone. She remained in custody Wednesday.
