A former Edinboro University student is set to stand trial for charges of robbery connected to a March 2015 shooting, an incident which resulted in the death of one student.

According to Erie News Now, Andrew Baker, 22, is to face trail on a felony count of conspiracy to commit robbery, in which he was allegedly involved in a plan to steal marijuana from Devin Stevenson, the accused shooter in the 2015 incident that took place at an off-campus Meadville Street apartment.

During the shooting, Stevenson allegedly shot at, and injured, Baker and O’Shae Imes, another student who passed away from gun shot wounds sustained in the incident.

Allegedly, Stevenson shot at Baker and Imes as a form of self-defense after he was robbed, severely injuring Imes in the torso and leg and shooting Baker in the shoulder. Stevenson was later charged with homicide by the Commonwealth and is scheduled for a trial on March 5, 2018.

As reported today by Erie News Now, an Edinboro Police officer testified that two individuals admitted to Baker planning to rob Stevenson of marijuana. The police officer also revealed that Baker implicated himself in the robbery attempt.

Baker is currently contained in the Erie County Prison on $250,000 bond.
