2 arrested in connection with shooting outside Frederick High School

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- Police say they've charged two men in a shooting at Frederick High School that injured two teenage boys last month.

Frederick police officials announced Wednesday that the men were arrested Tuesday, weeks after the teens were shot outside the school's gymnasium. A junior varsity basketball game was in progress against crosstown rival Gov. Thomas Johnson High.

Police say they've charged 21-year-old Brandon Tyler and 19-year-old Chandler Davenport with four counts each of assault, use of a handgun in a felony or violent crime and reckless endangerment. They're both also charged with conspiracy to commit assault.

Police would not comment on the motive, but they say there's a gang connection and the victims and defendants knew each other.

The victims were 14 and 15. Both are recovering from their injuries.
