PERKASIE, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say three teenagers will face prosecution as adults in the shooting death of a man during what investigators called a botched drug-related robbery in eastern Pennsylvania.

Officials said 19-year-old Iziah Amir Ramon-Lewis was shot at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday near a park in Perkasie in Upper Bucks County. Bucks County prosecutors said two 16-year-olds and a 15-year-old were arraigned on homicide charges and held without bail.

Authorities allege in court documents that the defendants conspired to rob a drug dealer they knew, but that person told them he was unavailable and put them in contact with Ramon-Lewis. Prosecutors allege that they tried to rob him when he arrived, and he sped away but later got out of car and approached the teens to confront them but was shot.
