HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — Trial dates have been set for three people charged in a shooting that wounded three University of Southern Mississippi football players.

The Hattiesburg American reports (http://bit.ly/pzrzTB) that Jamel Deshawn Black, Sharleisha Bolton and Patricia Brown are scheduled for trial on Nov. 30 in Forrest County Circuit Court. Each has been charged with three counts of accessory to aggravated assault after the fact.

Black, Brown and Bolton are accused of helping a fourth suspect, Travis “Taurus” Cardell Brown, elude capture. Patricia Brown is Travis Brown’s mother.

Travis Brown was transferred to the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility in Rankin County on Aug. 19 for violating probation on a possession of cocaine conviction from Jefferson Davis County. The Mississippi Department of Corrections’ online records show his eight-year sentence should be completed in June.

Travis Brown was indicted by a Forrest County grand jury in April on three counts of aggravated assault in the Nov. 14 shooting in the parking lot of Remington’s Hunt Club. No trial date has been set.

Southern Miss football players Martez Smith, Tim Green and Deddrick Jones were injured in the shooting.

Green and Jones are back on the Southern Miss football team this year. Smith, who has graduated, is paralyzed from the waist down.

Also charged were Van Allen Myers Jr. and Cleothus Wilkerson. They are each charged with accessory to aggravated assault after the fact. No trial date has been set.
