Two adolescents have been detained and charged in connection with the Dadeville mass shooting at a Sweet 16 birthday celebration last weekend, Alabama authorities announced on Wednesday.
Gunfire broke out at the Mahogany Masterpiece dance studio at about 10:34 p.m. on Saturday in Dadeville, a sleepy town of only 3,200 people in Tallapoosa County, about 62 miles northeast of the state capital of Montgomery. The dance studio is situated in the 200 Block of Broadnax Street.
Ty Reik McCullough, 17, and Travis McCullough, 16, were both formally charged with four charges of reckless homicide a few days later, according to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency.
Special Agents from the State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) of the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) were responsible for the arrest of the Tuskegee teenagers.
The ALEA released a statement saying, “These individuals have been charged following a complex and exhaustive investigation that was carried out with assistance from numerous law enforcement agencies.”
