Two brothers have been charged with the murder of a Darby teen.

20-year-old Jason Roberts, Jr. and 18-year-old Jermaine Roberts were arraigned Friday afternoon.

Police say they tried to rob 18-year-old Brian Brunston and four friends Sunday night as the group was walking home on Cedar Avenue after playing basketball.

When the friends ran, police say the Roberts brothers opened fire, hitting Brunston.

He died a short time later at the hospital.
