Two teens charged in connection to East Ridge robbery

Two teens face charges of attempted murder, aggravated robbery and possession of a firearm during a dangerous felony in connection to a shooting Thursday at Poindexter Avenue and Summit Avenue, according to a East Ridge Police Department released statement.

Authorities are not releasing the names of the suspects, ages 16 and 17, because they are juveniles.

Jeremy Rifenberick, 22, was shot in the chest during a robbery attempt while walking on Poindexter after he was approached by four men. He remains at Erlanger hospital and is expected to recover, according to authorities.
