Charges expected in fatal shooting of Gary brothers

Murder charges are expected to be filed Wednesday in the shooting deaths of two brothers in Gary.

Shaqwone Ham, 19, and his brother Charles Wood, 18, were gunned down Sunday, while they walked to their grandmother’s house for dinner.

Police have a 17-year-old in custody, and are searching for a 16-year-old.

Investigators believe robbery was the motive.

The suspects are accused of robbing another teenager just blocks away.

Police say neither the victims or the suspects have ever had run-ins with police before, and none of them are affiliated with a gang.
