Two more men are charged with murder in a shooting that left a teenager dead at a block party in New Jersey's capital. Trenton police say 31-year-old Rashead Miller and 20-year-old James James are known members or associates of the Sex Money Murder gang.

Their arrests came days after authorities charged three men and a 17-year-old in the shooting.

Tamrah Leonard was killed June 7 in what authorities believe was a gang-related shooting, spurred by another shooting the day before at a city nightclub. The block party was billed as an event to help stop the violence plaguing the city.

Authorities say more arrests are expected.
