Two teenagers are facing murder charges in the shooting death of an 87-year-old World War II veteran in Philadelphia.

 

Police say the 14-year-old boy and the 17-year-old girl were taken into custody on Friday and charged in the shooting death of George Greaves. Authorities did not release the suspects’ names.

 

Greaves was shot in the chest Wednesday in front of his home in the city’s Cedarbrook neighborhood. Police say the teens tried to rob Greaves and he pushed one of them before being shot in the chest.

 

Investigators say witnesses saw a female dressed in Muslim garb and a male running from the scene.

 

Family members say Greaves served with the Navy in World War II.
