PETERSBURG, VA (WWBT) – Five teenagers are facing murder and conspiracy charges in connection to a Saturday morning homicide.

Police say Anthony Cross, 19, Martavis Stevenson, 18, Diamond Roberts, 18, and two other juveniles were taken into custody less than 12 hours after a shooting that claimed the life of Corey Lewis, 16.

All five are being held without bond.

Police continue to investigate what led up to the shooting which happened around 2:00 a.m. Saturday morning in the 100 block of Virginia Street.

Besides Lewis, police said a 28-year-old man was also shot.

That man suffered serious injuries and was transported to VCU Medical Center, but police say he is expected to survive.

Anyone with information that could help police is asked to call Crime Solvers at 861-1212.
