A grand jury indicted a Frederick teenager charged with murder after a shooting during an after-prom party.
Ean Lanell Davis-Lattimore was indicted on second-degree murder and first-degree assault charges. The indictment was among eight returned by the grand jury on Friday.
Frederick police arrested Davis-Lattimore, 17, on May 13 after a shooting at a prom party left one girl dead and a boy injured. Police and prosecutors believe Davis-Lattimore fired the shots that struck the two people during a fight outside the party.
