Party shooting case sent to grand jury

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- A judge in Jackson has sent murder charges against two men to a grand jury in a shooting after a graduation party.

The Jackson Sun reported medical examiner Trent Harris testified Wednesday there were 26 bullet wounds in the two men who were killed in the April 28 shooting in downtown Jackson. Trent said Brian Banes' body bore nine bullet wounds and Delandis Clark had 17.

The court sent two counts of first-degree murder and one count of unlawful firearm possession against Anthony "Trouble Shooter" Swift to a Madison County grand jury.

The other defendant is Travontay Berry, who is charged with reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon and tampering with evidence in the shooting. He waived a preliminary hearing and his case also went to the grand jury.
