Harrisburg police have charged two teenagers in the city's latest homicide.

Jonathan Ramsey, 18, of Susquehanna Township, and Justin A. Clark, 17, of Harrisburg, were sent to Dauphin County Prison without bail Monday for the fatal shooting of 20-year-old Robert Burris, police said.

Clark has been charged as an adult.

Both face counts of criminal homicide and attempted homicide, and Clark faces an additional count of carrying a firearm without a license, according to court documents.

Burris was shot in the head Saturday night in the 200 block of S. 14th Street and died after he was rushed to the Harrisburg Hospital emergency room.

The homicide was the city's fifth this year and the second in a week.

Twenty-year-old Cortney Jackson was gunned down Monday night in an alley behind the 1800 block of Forster Street.

Police on Monday announced they have arrested and charged 19-year-old Tyya Barnes and 18-year-old Shane Holloway in Jackson's death.
