Remember the fiasco that happened at Trae Day back in July? Yeah, well let’s just say a whole bunch of people are about to be questioned. At least according to the Houston Chronicle. And their comments on the site are just … well, you’ll have to read and see.

Six more suspects have been charged in a shooting last month at Texas Southern University that injured eight people attending an event to recognize a local rapper’s good deeds.

The suspects are not in custody.

Charged with riot participation are Eddie Charles Larue II, 23, Roderick Deaundre Victor, 20, Graylon Charles Gaston Jr., 21, Geivance Earl Garner Jr.., 18, Antonio Devinque Tezeno, 19, and Michael John Hopkins, 23.

A seventh suspect, Albert Walker Mondane, 19, who is also known as “A-Walk,” surrendered to Houston police and TSU investigators Friday after he was charged with engaging in criminal activity in connection with the shooting.

The shooting happened about 8:30 p.m. July 22 on the TSU campus at 3100 Cleburne during “Trae Day,” an event to celebrate the work of rapper Frazier Thompson III better known by his stage name, Trae, with at-risk youth in Houston.

Eight people, ranging in age from 14 to 21, were taken to local hospitals with gunshot wounds. No one was seriously injured.

The City Council officially honored Thompson on July 22, 2008, which officials proclaimed “Trae Day.”

As in 2008, this year’s “Trae Day” was promoted as a free family block party.

Anyone with information about the case or on the suspects’ whereabouts is asked to call Houston police at713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
