A 23-year-old city man has been charged with murder and robbery in connection with the fatal shooting last month of a teenager at a 4th Ward drug den. The suspect, Jarvis Porter, was at Paterson police headquarters on Wednesday afternoon on a separate matter when police charged him with murder in the Feb. 4 homicide.

At the time of the killing, police had not revealed that the case involved a robbery. But Reyes confirmed that the robbery charges were connected to the killing, which took place inside an apartment at 87 Auburn St.
