Norristown Police and Montgomery County Detectives, according to a report, launched a joint investigation into the homicide.

The investigation found that the defendant, a former boyfriend of the victim’s sister, was seen attending a party at 1240 Markley Street that evening. Detectives learned that the victim had left his home, two doors away from the alley, to go talk to White right before the shooting took place.

“Detectives recovered video surveillance that showed a dark-colored sedan matching the defendant’s car leaving the scene immediately following the shooting,” the DA said. “hite was arrested and charged with First-Degree Murder, Third-Degree Murder, Person Not to Possess a Firearm and Possessing an Instrument of Crime. He was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Greg Scott.”

There is no bail available for First-Degree Murder, and the defendant was remanded to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m., April 2, 2021 before Judge Scott.

The case will be prosecuted by First Assistant Edward F. McCann Jr. and Assistant District Attorney Kelly Lloyd.
