Crime, News, People

Niochie Lawson, 23-years-old of Laurel, Md. and Jakal Stone, 20-years-old, of Prince George's County will stand trial on charges including robbery and conspiracy.

The duo is suspected to have invaded a home that ended with a gun battle leaving the homeowner wounded and an trespasser dead.

Prosecutors say Lawson and Stone sought treatment for gunshot wounds following the June 9 ambush, in which one gunman was killed.  A bullet taken from Lawson's leg at a hospital matched those fired by the homeowner Jermaine Edwards.

Edwards was shot in the chest and both legs in the attack.  He claims he fired in self-defense and will not face charges.

Lawson and Stone are being held without bail.
