Three Purvis High School students are among six suspects charged in a drive-by shooting in Lumberton early Sunday.

Bond was set at $500,000 Monday night for four of the suspects, but two others are being held without bond because they were on probation for other felonies.

Municipal Judge Jefferson Stewart set bond for 18-year-old Arsenio Tatum, 19-year-old Ashton Dantzler, 18-year-old Jarboyia Badon and 19-year-old Louis Gray, 19, at an initial appearance.

Lumberton Police Chief Adrian Fortenberry said the officer received a call around 1 a.m. Sunday that cars had pulled up to a residence and started shooting.

No injuries were reported.
