A 10-year sentence is recommended for Davenport with nine years suspended, if he testifies. If that is the case, police say he would spend a year at Frederick County Detention Center.

Brandon Earl Tyler, 21, is being charged as the gunmen in the shooting. His trail is set for Nov. 17th.

A 14-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy were shot outside of the gym during a basketball game against Thomas Johnson High School at 8:11 p.m. on Feb. 4. They were found by responders inside the building, and were taken to the hospital and later released.

Classes were cancelled the following day. Students returned to Frederick High School on Feb. 6, and two varsity basketball games were played that night among increased police presence.

Police were investigating the possibility that the shooting could be gang-related after students said that the victims might be part of a local gang.
