  • Attempted robbery
  • Conspiracy to commit robbery

Typically, law enforcement will not publicly disclose a juvenile offender’s identity. However, authorities say they chose to identify Wynn because of “seriousness of the charges and possibility of additional violent acts.”

Wynn’s arrest Sunday afternoon comes after a Lancaster County man was found shot to death early Friday morning in the parking lot of an apartment complex in Gloucester County.

The Gloucester County Sheriff’s Office says it responded to the Colonial Point Apartments in the 7700 block of Colonial Point Lane on Friday for a report of gunshots and found the victim lying unconscious in the parking lot.

After deputies secured the scene, rescue units pronounced the man deceased. He’s been identified as 20-year-old Hezekiah Fauntleroy Jr, of White Stone, Virginia.

Authorities say they’re still looking for a second suspect in the case, 22-year-old Hampton resident Destin Moore.

  • Use of a firearm in the commission of a felony (as a principal in the second degree)
  • Attempted robbery
  • Conspiracy to commit robbery

The case is still under investigation and there is no additional information available.
