Three Anchorage residents have been indicted in connection with the April 1 shooting death of a 15-year-old girl.

Prosecutors say 24-year-old Jamal Townsend and 29-year-old Lammar Burney were each indicted Wednesday on seven counts including first- and- second degree murder and second-degree assault, as well as assault and misconduct involving a weapon.

Townsend also was indicted on one count of misconduct involving a weapon for alleged conduct in March at the same Mountain View home where Precious Alex was fatally shot.

Prosecutors say 21-year-old Karlie West was indicted on charges of second-degree murder, misconduct involving a weapon and third-degree assault.

West reportedly told authorities Townsend harbored a grudge against a man at the apartment. West is accused of driving Townsend and Burney to the apartment where the shooting occurred.
