DETROIT (AP) - Three men have been arraigned on charges connected to the shooting of a 2-year-old Detroit girl, who suffered serious head injuries.

The men arraigned by video Saturday were 30-year-old Cleveland Smelley, 21-year-old Deonta Bennett and 32-year-old Antoine Smelley. They have been charged with assault with intent to murder and other crimes. They were denied bond and are scheduled to return to court June 9.

Wayne County prosecutor spokeswoman Maria Miller says her office hasn’t been contacted by any lawyers representing the defendants.

Prosecutors say shots were fired at many people in a car Wednesday night. It was preceded by a fight, threats and the pouring of juice over the head of a woman preparing to go to prom.

Makanzee Oldham was shot in the head and is in critical condition.
