Troy Lamonta Bradner, of Westgate, was charged Thursday with two counts of first-degree murder, police said.

The victims were shot Saturday about 1:40 p.m., while seated in a car outside the Raven Mart corner store, West Lafayette Avenue at North Bentalou Street.

Both young men died at the hospital. They were identified by police as Quindell Ford, 15, and Anthony Daniels, 20, two neighbors in Sandtown Winchester.

Online court records did not list an attorney for Bradner Thursday night.

The shooting, police said, came in retaliation for a robbery.

"How does a 16-year-old get his hands on a firearm? Because they're readily available," Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said Thursday.

He again urged tougher penalties for illegally carrying a gun. A permit is required to carry in Maryland.

Davis is supporting legislation in this year's General Assembly session that would impose a mandatory, one-year prison sentence for anyone caught with a loaded, illegal firearm.
