Dequan Rashud McMiller and Michael Meeks III, both 21, are each charged with malicious secret assault and felony conspiracy.

The incident happened in February at a basketball court in Bessemer City. Surveillance video shows two men get out of a car and attack a third on the court.

One of the men had a rifle in his hand during the assault.

“McMiller was in possession of an Anderson AM-15 Rifle with high capacity Drum magazine,” police said.
