Two students from Cape Fear High School were charged Tuesday in the shooting of a 15-year-old student at the Fayetteville, N.C., high school.

Surveillance video helped lead authorities to the suspects, a 15-year-old and Ta'Von McLaurin, 18. The teens allegedly brought a .22-caliber Daisy rifle to school on Monday and shot Catilyn Ambercrombie, 15, in the neck. Ambercrombie was standing in a breezeway outside the cafeteria. She has undergone surgery and is in stable condition.

The younger suspect has been charged with attempted first degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill. He was being held in the county juvenile facility.

McLaurin was scheduled to appear in a Fayetteville courtroom Tuesday afternoon on a charge of felony aiding and abetting.
