Two teenagers have been charged as adults in last week's shooting in Baltimore County of a Morgan State University student, who remains in critical condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center, according to police.

Police identified the suspects as Jerry David Hawkins, 16, of the 800 block Judy Lane in Pikesville, and Brandon Rickman White, 17, of the 5400 block of Orange Grove Court, in Ellicott City. Each has been charged as an adult with attempted first-degree murder and handgun violations.

The victim, Ian Holland, 21, who lives in Northwest Baltimore's Ashburton neighborhood, was shot about 12:15 p.m. Wednesday in the first block of Tent Mill Lane, in Milford Mill. Baltimore County police spokeswoman Cathy Batton said detectives believe the motive to be robbery.

Clinton R. Coleman, a spokesman for Morgan State University, said Holland enrolled in the school in the fall of 2008 and has enough credits to qualify as a sophomore. The suspects are being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
