Two more arrests have been made in connection to the shooting death of 16-year-old Alexia Carey in Toledo on Monday, including one adult and a third teenager.

According to authorities, a 15-year-old has been charged with inciting to violence and weapons under disability. The adult, 20-year-old Jarrett Sullivan, was charged with inciting to violence knowingly engage in conduct proximately resulting in commission of violence.

According to police documents, Sullivan was engaged in a Facebook confrontation with another man and met to fight, "knowing that several individuals possessed handguns and the fight would likely lead to shots fired. During that fight, guns were brandished, shots were fired and Alexia Carey was struck with a bullet." Carey later died of her injuries.

These arrest follow the earlier arrests of two 17-year-old boys who were charged with felonious assault on Tuesday.

According to authorities speaking with 13abc, the two 17-year-olds made their first appearance before a judge on Tuesday morning. Their next appearance is scheduled for March 26.

None of the suspects have been charged as the shooter and the investigation into the case remains ongoing. Authorities say more arrests are possible.

They believe the incident stems from a fight on social media, that turned into physical violence between two groups along the 2000 block of Nevada Ave. around 3:45 p.m. on Monday.

A second victim, Charles Barrett, 60, was grazed by a bullet to the arm but is expected to be okay.
