BAKER - A 16-year-old male was arrested, accused in a shooting at a party in Baker where three teens were killed.

The suspect's name was not released since he is a juvenile. He's charged with three counts of first-degree murder, one count of attempted murder and one count of illegal use of a firearm.

Baker Police say shots rang out around 11 p.m. at the Baker Civic Club on North Magnolia Drive. It was rented out for the party.

Police say 15-year-old Marcell Franklin was shot and died at the scene. Two other teens, 15-year-old Kendal Dorsey and 18-year-old Diontrey Claiborne, succumbed to injuries and died at the hospital Saturday.

A fourth teen, 19-year-old Javaughn Simmons, was also shot and is in stable condition.

A parent of one of the people attending the party told News 2 that three separate fights broke out at the party, but none of the shooting victims were involved with the fights. They also said the party was for a Baker High senior's birthday.

We'll have more on the murder investigation on WBRZ News 2 at 6 p.m. and 10 p.m.
