Couple Charged for Role in December Shooting at Falls Twp Apartment Complex in Failed “Rip Off”
A Bucks County couple have been charged with two counts of robbery, two counts of conspiracy, possession of weapons and related offenses connected to a shooting that took place at the Commons of Fallsington Apartment Complex last year which resulted in one man being killed and three others shot.
Hassan Bass, 20 of Doylestown and Lindsey Bojorquez, 20 of Bristol are two of the four *suspects connected to a planned robbery on December 1, 2020 in Falls Township .
According to the probable cause affidavit, Falls Township Police were called to the apartment complex for a shooting report with one person down on the ground and involving several vehicles just around 9:30 p.m.
Shortly thereafter, Police were contacted by Jefferson Health in Fairless Hills who said they had three gun shot victims and Lower Bucks Hospital who reported that one 19 year-old male had arrived with a fatal gun shot wound to the chest and was pronounced dead at 9:45 p.m, court records show.
A Morrisville Police officer, located a black 2016 Nissan Altima in the parking lot of the Alexandra Apartments on 250 Plaza Boulevard, matching the description of one of the vehicles seen at the shooting scene, according to police. The officer noted the vehicle damage was from being struck by four bullets. A police inquiry revealed, Bojorquez, as the owner of the vehicle and from previous police contacts with law enforcement was aware she was in a relationship with Bass, court records show.
Bass is known to Bristol Borough Police for a shooting incident last year on Jefferson Avenue.
On December 2 of 2020 Falls Township Police Department received video surveillance that shows the 100 block of Nicole’s Way and the access road between K and H buildings of the apartment complex. On the video a silver hatchback is seen pulling up and parking on the access road with two people exiting the vehicle, according to court records.
A short time later, what is believed to be Bojorquez’s black Nissan pulls up, parks as the two individuals approach that vehicle. Several minutes of conversation took place and then the two individuals standing outside the black Nissan began shooting, said police in court records.
Subsequent investigation revealed that Bass and one other individual, and 16 year-old William Hunter (charged with manslaughter for the shooting in June) were at the Alexandria Apartments in Falls Twp when the received a call from a person who currently has a active arrest warrant connected to the shooting (suspect number 3). He said he had set up a ‘lick, meaning a robbery. Once Bojorquez,showed up with her car, the suspects went to pick up the person who set up the rip off, police said in court records.
Suspect number 3 told the group, he was in touch with a man named “Flagz” who was going to buy two guns for $1000.00 from him, but instead of the guns, he was going to place bricks in a book bag trying to pass it off as the two guns, and flee the area before the buyer could figure out he had been ripped off, the probable cause said.
Hunter went back to his apartment in Morrisville, got a book bag, then the group drove to the local Sunoco, with Hunter retrieving several bricks while Bass, Bojorquez and two others waited in her car, police said.
Hunter, according to court records, brought with him a Smith & Wesson .40 Caliber gun ‘in case something went wrong.”
The five in the car drove to the apartment complex. where ‘the lick’ was supposed to happen. A dispute over money broke out with shots being fired, and Hunter firing the shot that ultimately caused the death of the 19 year-old male.
Hunter suffered a gun shot wound to his chest, with the as yet arrested male suspect suffering a gun shot wound to the torso.
Bass and Bojorquez for their role in the attempted robbery face a slew of related charges.
Bass remains in Bucks County Correctional Facility on 10 % of $75,000 bail with a preliminary hearing set for December 15.
Bojorquez spent one night in jail and posted bond earlier today. She is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on December 15.
