Connecticut authorities arrested two men in connection with the fatal shooting deaths of two men outside a Meek Mill concert in 2016.

Wallingford Police officials said 33-year-old Tivon Edwards, of New Haven, and 23-year-old Kyle Hampton, of North Haven, were charged with multiple counts including first-degree manslaughter.

A judge set bail for Hampton at $1 million and he is slated to appear in court July 31, WFSB reports.

Edwards has an arraignment hearing scheduled for Monday.

The charges stem from the December 2016 fatal shootings of Travis Ward and Jaquan Graves, both of New Haven, in the parking lot of the Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford following a Meek Mill concert.

The shooting left two other people injured.

Investigators have maintained that the shooting wasn’t directly related to the rapper.
