The teens have hearings set for April 25, 28 and 30.  Daniel Williams and Joshua Hodge have hearings set for April 28.  Tarez Buchanon and Robert Griffin have hearings set for April 30.

The eight suspects are accused of being involved in a fire fight on April 9 where a stray bullet hit and killed Swoveland.
