Two more suspects — 18 and 19 year old males, both recent students at Halifax County High School — have been charged in connection with the May 26 HCHS graduation brawl.

Tyjae Hendren, 18, and Javon Fitzgerald, 19, were booked on the charges Friday at the Halifax jail and then released. Each is charged with misdemeanor offenses.

So far, police have served warrants on three suspects: the third is Moses Hendren, who was charged last week. Moses Hendren and Tyjae Hendren are related.

Tyjae Hendren has been charged with disorderly conduct and assault and battery. Fitzgerald, who graduated at HCHS two years ago, was arrested on a single charge of disorderly conduct.

Moses Hendren was a member of the HCHS Class of 2018 who graduated on the morning of the fight which broke out in the gym balcony area. He is currently in jail awaiting trial on the two misdemeanor offenses of assault and disorderly conduct, and two gun-related charges, at least one of which is a felony.

South Boston police have identified a fourth adult suspect in the incident, a 23-year-old Clover woman who has pending warrants of disorderly conduct and assault and battery against her. A fifth suspect, a juvenile, also has been identified by police as taking part in the fight.

The case has been investigated by Officer Amy Jackson of the South Boston Police Department. The two subjects taken to the jail Friday were arrested by Deputy C. Martin of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office.
