He is facing one felony count each of homicide, conspiracy to commit homicide, aggravated assault, robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery and firearms not to be carried without a license in the June 23 death of Michael Quinones III, according to online court records.

Police said the shooting happened as Quinones, 19, was being robbed of his cash and cellphone.

An alleged teenage male accomplice was arrested July 1. York City Police Officer Derek Hartman, the department spokesperson, previously said the unidentified teen would be charged as an adult.

Quinones was fatally shot in the backyard of his home in the 500 block of West Princess Street just after 8 p.m. June 23, according to York County Coroner Pam Gay, who has ruled the death a homicide.

He suffered multiple gunshot wounds, the coroner said.

Battle and the teen also were suspects in an Aug. 8, 2019, strong-arm robbery for which only the teen was charged, according to court documents.
