Troy Fletcher arrested: Suspect wanted in deadly shooting near Roxborough High School turns self in to Philadelphia police

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Philadelphia police have taken another suspect into custody after the deadly shooting near Roxborough High School last month.

Troy Fletcher, 15, surrendered to homicide detectives Monday afternoon, according to a tweet from Assistant Commissioner Frank Vanore. Fletcher is charged with murder and related offenses.

Police are still looking for 16-year-old Dayron Burney-Thorn, who is also charged with murder in the case.

On Monday, the US Marshals Service announced it was now offering a cash reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to Burney-Thorn’s arrest.

Burney Thorn is 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs approximately 215 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. His last known address was at the 2900 block of Bambrey Street in Philadelphia.

The teenager should be viewed as armed and dangerous.

The fatal shooting occurred at around 4:30 p.m. on September 27 in the 4700 block of Pechin Street, just as a junior football game between three schools was ending: Roxborough High School, Northeast High School and Boys Latin Charter School.

The shooting killed 14-year-old Nicolas Elizalde of Havertown, Pennsylvania and left four other teenagers wounded.

Elizalde was a freshman at Saul High School but played football for Roxborough.

Police said Elizalde was unlikely to be one of the intended targets.

According to investigators, the suspects waited six minutes before jumping out of the SUV and firing more than 60 shots.

A $45,000 reward had previously been offered for information leading to an arrest or conviction.
