Two Macon brothers were indicted Tuesday in the February shooting of six men and two women at a house in the 2800 block of Mercer University Drive.

Adrian Maurice Fletcher, 27, and Frank Fletcher Jr., 28, are each charged with eight charges of aggravated assault, according to an indictment filed in Bibb County Superior Court.

The shooting followed an argument, according to the district attorney's office.

Adrian Fletcher, of Pinson Street, also is charged with possession of a firearm by a first-offender probationer. Frank Fletcher Jr., of Riverside Drive, also is charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He previously was convicted in Bibb County on an armed robbery charge, according to the indictment.

Both men are being held at the Bibb County jail, according to jail records.
