A man wanted in connection with the Philadelphia shooting death of a teenager was arrested Sunday, Jan. 9, by Oakwood Police, according to authorities.

Oakwood Police said officers were called out to the Walmart shopping center regarding an alleged fraud in progress.

“When officers arrived on scene, (Haneef) Roberson was arrested without incident along with another individual,” Oakwood Police wrote on its Facebook page.

No further information was available on the department’s social media post, and Oakwood Police Chief Tim Hatch did not have any further details when reached Monday, Jan. 10.

Hatch said Philadelphia authorities have placed a jail hold on Roberson and "will be coming to pick him up."

The Philadelphia Police Department’s homicide unit is preparing Roberson’s extradition. Roberson has a warrant for charges including murder and conspiracy, according to the police department.

Philadelphia Police responded at 3:28 p.m. Nov. 29 to West Wyoming Avenue, where a 14-year-old boy was found with multiple gunshot wounds.

The boy, Samir Jefferson, was transported to Temple University Hospital but succumbed to his injuries less than an hour later, police said.

Two other men were arrested and charged with murder, police said.

Roberson also faces charges in Hall County including first-degree forgery, misdemeanor theft by deception and giving false information to an officer.

According to the warrants, Roberson was accused of using a fake $100 bill to buy a gift card at Walmart.
