CANNANNEW REPORT

One of two men charged in the May killing of a Vineland 15-year-old told investigators the shooting occurred during a drug deal, according to court documents. Anthony Torres-Sanchez was found shot in the 1800 block of North Delsea Drive at 11:45 a.m. on May 26, authorities said. He was taken to a hospital where he died of his injuries Deshawn T. Bowen, 23, of Bridgeton, and Rohdane E. Watson Jr., 18, of Vineland, are charged with murder and conspiracy to commit murder, officials said. The suspects were identified after surveillance video showed a vehicle allegedly used by the defendants and an interview with the owner of that vehicle, who is not charged in the case, investigators said in criminal complaints filed in the case. In an interview with investigators, Bowen admitted to driving the car, according to an affidavit of probable cause. He also claimed he and Watson met the victim for a drug deal, the affidavit said. “During the purchase of marijuana, the victim was shot, at which time Bowen fled the scene of the shooting,” investigators said in the court document. It’s not clear from the records if the victim was allegedly buying or selling marijuana during the encounter. An attorney representing Bowen declined to comment on the case Monday, indicating he had only recently been retained and did not have all of the information from prosecutors about the case. Watson’s attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment Monday.
