Police have arrested a man in the shootings of five Duquesne University basketball players

Dan Nephin:

Brandon Baynes

The arrest came after a 19-year-old sophomore was apprehended on weapons-related charges. Police said Brittany Jones helped six men get into a school dance and knew some were armed.

Brandon Baynes and William Holmes, both 18, fired on the players early Sunday after the dance on campus, police said.

Baynes faced an arraignment on charges of aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, carrying an unlicensed firearm and criminal conspiracy.

Police issued an arrest warrant for Holmes on the same charges.

Three players remained hospitalized following Sunday's shootings after the dance sponsored by the school's Black Student Union. The most seriously wounded, junior forward Sam Ashaolu, 23, was in critical condition at Mercy Hospital with bullet fragments in his head.

Jones was arrested Monday on charges of reckless endangerment, carrying a firearm without a license and criminal conspiracy. She was arraigned and posted bond Tuesday morning, leaving the Allegheny County Jail out of the view of TV cameras.

According to a criminal complaint, Jones, who is active with the Black Student Union, got a call from a man asking if he and his brother could come to the dance. They arrived with four others about midnight.

Jones told police she became aware that several of the men had guns while walking to the party and they asked Jones if they were going to be "patted down" before entering, authorities said. The doorman allegedly told Jones that partygoers weren't being searched, and the men went into the dance, police said.
