One of two teenagers charged in the shooting death of a Harrisburg man is headed to trial.

Jonathan Ramsey, 18, of Susquehanna Township, waived counts of homicide and attempted homicide during his preliminary hearing Wednesday before District Judge George Zozos.

A formal arraignment was set for June 18 in Dauphin County Court.

Ramsey's co-defendant, 17-year-old Justin A. Clark, of Harrisburg, has a preliminary hearing scheduled for May 30. He has been charged as an adult.

Both teens are being held in the Dauphin County Prison without bail for the fatal shooting of 20-year-old Robert Burris.

Burris was shot in the head March 9 in the 200 block of S. 14th Street and died after he was rushed to the Harrisburg Hospital emergency room.
