WALLINGFORD, Conn. (AP) — Two men have been arrested in connection with the shooting deaths of two people outside a 2016 Meek Mill concert in Connecticut.

Police on Monday said 23-year-old Kyle Hampton, of North Haven, and 33-year-old Tivon Edwards, of New Haven, face first-degree manslaughter and other charges.

Hampton’s bail was set at $1 million and he is scheduled to appear in court July 31. Edwards is scheduled to be arraigned Monday. No attorneys were listed in court records.

Travis Ward and Jaquan Graves, both of New Haven, were shot in the parking lot of the Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford after a concert by rapper Meek Mill on Dec. 30, 2016. Two others were injured by gunfire.

Police previously said the shooting doesn’t appear to be directly related to the rapper.
