WOODBURY, Minn. — Editor's note: The above video is from June 6.

Two more people have been charged in connection with a June 5 shooting at a graduation party in Woodbury, which left 14-year-old Demaris Nathan Hobbs-Ekdahl dead.

Nineteen-year-old Jaden Lavan Townsend and 23-year-old Enrique Lucio Davila are both charged with one count of aiding and abetting second-degree murder and various counts of assault.

Neither Townsend nor Davila have been arrested yet.

Keith Dawson, 35, was also charged with several felony counts, including drive-by shooting, illegal possession of a firearm and second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon in connection to the shooting.
