2 men charged in fatal graduation party shooting

STILLWATER, Minn. (AP) -- Prosecutors have charged two men in a fatal shooting at a Woodbury graduation party.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that 19-year-old Jaden Townsend and 23-year-old Enrique Davila were charged late Thursday in Washington County with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and various assault charges in the death of 14-year-old Demaris Hobbs-Ekdahl on Saturday.

According to court documents, Townsend and Davila remain at large.

A 17-year-old referred to as a "juvenile defendant" is also at large. The charging documents don't provide a motive for the slaying or say who fired the fatal shot.

Hobbs-Ekdahl's stepfather has been charged for allegedly firing the shots that started the incident.
