Two brothers have been indicted on charges following a shooting at a Tennessee house party that left a teenage girl dead and several others wounded.

The Jackson Sun reported a Haywood County grand jury Monday indicted Quin Love and his brother, Christian Ray Cottrell, on charges related to the June 26 shooting.

Authorities said Love opened fire on a crowd at the party, hitting 17-year-old Elia Hernandez, who was inside the house hiding from a fight outside. She was fatally shot in the abdomen.

At least one other person was shot while trying to break up the fight, and three others were injured, including one seriously.

Love was facing murder, attempted murder, assault, and other charges. Cottrell was also facing an assault charge.
