Lynn teen charged after alleged accomplice shot by victim

LYNN — It was supposed to be an armed robbery, but the three teenagers did not know that one of their intended victims had a weapon of his own. So when Amoy Blake pulled his gun, police say, his victim fired his .357 handgun first, leaving Blake mortally wounded in the hall of a Washington Street apartment building.

Now, the two surviving alleged robbers, Jahleel T. Sanders Williams, 17, and 15-year-old Kevin O. Sanchez, are facing charges that they murdered their friend, even though neither one fired a single shot.
