Two suspects in a fatal shooting in South Bend Saturday night have been formally charged.

He’s being held without bond and faces 65 years in prison if convicted.

Adrian Evans, 31, was also formally charged Monday with assisting a criminal, which is a level 5 felony that carries a maximum of 6 years in jail.

Harper was found dead inside one of the rooms Saturday, Oct. 22.

Investigators say he was shot to death in the midst of an argument.
