2 teenagers charged in fatal shooting during dice game

(AP) -- Two teenagers have been charged in connection with a shooting death that authorities say happened during a dice game in Baltimore County.

Baltimore County police announced on Tuesday the arrests of 18-year-old Michael Mullen and 17-year-old Amritpal Singh Mavi. Both teenagers are charged with murder and armed robbery in the case.

Police say the suspects and 21-year-old Marlo Braxton were playing dice in the basement of a Dundalk home in April when 17-year-old Amritpal Singh Mavi shot the victim in the head.

Braxton was found dead inside the residence on April 4. The motive for the shooting remains unclear.

Authorities say Mullen and Singh Mavi fled to Beaver, West Virginia and were arrested weeks later.

Both teenagers are being held without bail. Attorneys for them could not immediately be reached Tuesday night.
