LONG BEACH, Calif. – Two 16-year-old boys have been charged as adults in the death of a 16-year-old girl who was shot after a homecoming football game in Long Beach.
Los Angeles County prosecutors say Tom Love Vinson and Daivion Davis were charged Friday with one count each of murder and two counts each of attempted murder.
Davis pleaded not guilty Friday. Vinson's arraignment was continued to Nov. 16.
Police say honor student Melody Ross was an innocent bystander who was shot when two gangs had a confrontation Oct. 30 at Woodrow Wilson High School. She died at a hospital.
An 18-year-old man and a 20-year-old man wounded in the shooting are expected to survive.
The suspects are each being held on $3 million bail. Prosecutors say they did not attend the school.
