PITTSBURGH - Police charged two men Tuesday with shooting five Duquesne basketball players after a school dance, and they accused a 19-year-old sophomore of helping six men into the dance despite knowing some were armed.
Brandon Baynes, 18, was arraigned on five counts of criminal attempt at homicide. Prosecutors also filed charges of aggravated assault, criminal conspiracy and weapons counts against him and William Holmes, 18. A reckless endangerment charge was also filed against Holmes, who is still being sought.
Three players remained hospitalized, including Sam Ashaolu, 23, in critical condition with bullet fragments in his head.
Brittany Jones, accused of helping get some men with guns into the party, was arrested Monday on charges of reckless endangerment, carrying a firearm without a license and criminal conspiracy. She was arraigned and posted bond Tuesday.
