Three males have already been arrested in connection with the March 6 shooting of Northeast High School students near a Dunkin’ Donuts.

The suspects have been identified as Ahnile Buggs, 18, of the 1000 block of W. Olney Ave.; Jamaal Tucker, 18, of the 200 block of E. Slocum St. in Mount Airy; and Jermahd Carter, 19.

All three males have been charged with Attempted Murder and other charges.

A video showed a dark blue 2019 Hyundai Sonata, with tinted windows pulling into the parking lot, and three masked males exiting the passenger doors. They ran toward a bus stop and fired guns at people waiting to board, then hopped back in the car as the driver raced away.

The victims were seven males and one female, ages 15-17. Seven were admitted to hospitals in stable condition. One, a 16-year-old boy, sustained nine gunshot wounds to the torso and had been in critical condition, but he is recovering. He is believed to be the target of the shooting. ••
