The trials for four individuals suspected of injuring three people during a drive-by shooting in Campustown are set for May 9. 

Terrion Maxfield, 20, of Milwaukee, and Desmon Siner, 19, of Milwaukee, were arrested on attempted murder charges, along with Charles Smith, 20, of Milwaukee, and Traveion Henry, 21, of Milwaukee, who were also later arrested for attempted murder.

They are all charged with two counts of attempted murder, intimidation with a dangerous weapon and willful injury.

A conviction of attempted murder, a class B felony, will result in a penalty of up to 50 years in prison. 

Sgt. Derek Grooters and Ofc. Clint Hertz of the Ames Police Department were on the scene investigating the original dispute when the suspects began firing, injuring Kyle Heaton, 22, of Ames; Antwane Gordon, 24, of Fort Dodge, Iowa; and Naronne Cole Jr., 22, of Fort Dodge, Iowa.

All three victims were hospitalized after the shooting. Gordon and Cole were involved in the original dispute. 

Officers began shooting back at the vehicle before it sped away. The vehicle was located later that night at a hospital in Fort Dodge, Iowa, where Maxfield and Siner were treated for gunshot wounds.  

Authorities arrested Smith and Henry after locating them in the same city.
