MEMPHIS, Tenn. —Three people have been indicted on first-degree murder charges from a drive-by shooting in January that killed one person.

A grand jury indicted 21-year-old Demarcus Johnson, 20-year-old Otha Ray and his 21-year-old cousin Fredrick Wilson on first-degree murder charges and three counts of attempted first-degree, the report states.

All three were arrested the following day.
