Pa. cop: Two men who didn't shoot cop still guilty of murder
Says you don't have to pull the trigger, just have to be on the same wavelength as someone who does

PHILADELPHIA — Though Eric Deshann Floyd and Levon Terrell Warner didn't fatally shoot a Philadelphia police sergeant after robbing a bank in May 2008, they are just as guilty as their dead accomplice, who pulled the trigger, the prosecutor told jurors yesterday as the defendants' murder trial began.
"You don't have to pull the trigger. You don't even have to be present when the killing is committed. You don't have to even know when it occurs. You just have to be on the same wavelength," Assistant District Attorney Jude Conroy said in his opening statement.
