Frederick man pleads guilty to high school shooting

Twenty-year-old Chandler Davenport was expected to be sentenced Tuesday. The sentencing is now set for January 6.  He pleaded guilty a few months ago for his role in the shooting. Davenport was charged with two counts of reckless endangerment. A judge accepted his plea under one condition: that he would testify against the alleged shooter, Brandon Tyler. Under that plea Davenport would likely only spend one year in jail.

A 14-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy were shot back in February outside of the gym during a basketball game. Both boys survived. The alleged shooter is scheduled to go on trial next year.
