BALTIMORE (AP) - A bystander who was grabbed as a human shield was one of two people killed in gang shooting at a Baltimore bus stop, police said.

Twenty-five-year-old surgical support technician Brandon Finney was waiting for a bus near Lexington Market Sunday night when two members of one gang gunned down a member of a rival gang, Baltimore Police said.

Police said in charging documents that 25-year-old Antwon Morton and 28-year-old Samuel Rogers were charged Tuesday with first-degree murder and numerous other offenses. They are accused of killing Finney and 20-year-old Christopher Camphor.

The two were shot about 11:30 p.m. Sunday and both died at the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center where Finney worked, police said. During the investigation, witnesses told officers the shooters were members of the Black Guerilla Family gang.

The charging documents said Camphor belonged to a branch of a rival gang, the Bloods.

According to charging documents, Camphor was targeted because of an earlier dispute between the Black Guerilla Family and the Bloods. Finney was an uninvolved bystander, police say.

Officials at Shock Trauma called his death a “shocking loss.”
