SHELBY COUNTY, TN (WMC) - Two men arrested in connection to a New Year's Eve party bus shooting were indicted and charged with 25 counts of attempted first-degree murder, according to the Office of the Shelby County District Attorney General.
On January 1, investigators said two men began arguing with another man outside Ice Bar in the 4200 block of Hacks Cross Road. The man then got onto a party bus with 24 other people.
Shortly afterward on Interstate 240, a Nissan Maxima corralled the bus by pulling in front and hitting the brakes, causing the driver to slow down. Investigators say two men inside at 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe pulled up alongside the bus. Investigators say the driver of the Tahoe, later identified as Robert Sanders, began firing shots into the bus.
Sanders, 32, and the passenger in the Tahoe, 24-year-old Ladarius Berry, were later arrested. Each man was charged with 25 counts of attempted first-degree murder, one for every person on the party bus.
