men indicted on weapons
charges in school shooting

FLINT, Mich. (AP) - Indictments
g nsealed yesterday accused three men of
deral weapons counts involving a pistol
police say a 6-year-old used in killing a
first-grade classmate.*
Grand jurors on Wednesday charged
Jamelle Andre James, Robert Lee Morris
Ill and Sir Marcus Winfrey, all of nearby
Mount Morris Township, with possessing
stolen firearms and being unlawful users of
marijuana in possession of firearms, U.S.
Attorney Saul Green said.
Authorities say Morris in December pos-
essed and sold a stolen .32-caliber semi-
automatic handgun that made its way into
the possession of James and Winfrey.
Prosecutors say that weapon ultimately
got into the hands of the 6-year-old boy
police say fatally shot classmate Kayla
Rolland on Feb. 29 in Buell Elementary
School in Mount Morris Township.
James, a friend of the boy's family, earli-
er had been charged with involuntary
manslaughter in Kayla's death for allegedly
*eaving the handgun within easy access of
the boy.
Genesee County prosecutors say investi-
gators believe the gun had been left under
James' blankets at the house where the boy
was staying with Winfrey, his uncle.

Since the shooting, Winfrey has been
jailed in Genesee County on unrelated, out-
standing warrants.
Morris, who had not been charged previ-
ously, was arraigned later yesterday in fed-
eral court on one indictment count of
possession and sale of the stolen pistol,
and one count of possession and sale of a
12-gauge shotgun found in a "flophouse"
where the boy had been staying.
Two other counts allege Morris unlaw-
fully used marijuana while in possession of
the firearms.
Morris posted S 10,000 secured bond and
was released to his father's custody. As
part of his release, Morris was ordered by
U.S. Magistrate Wallace Capel Jr. to wear
an electronic tether, spend weekends under
house arrest and remain home unless work-
ing his job part-time for a plumbing con-
struction business.
"If you fail to follow any of the condi-
tions of my bond," Capel told Morris, "I'm
revoking the conditions of bond, and you're
going to be locked up."
After his son's arraignment, Robert Lee
Morris 11 said his son was only a middle-
man in transactions involving the weapons
and that "I believe he's learned his lesson."
"He's a good kid, just made a mistake,"

the elder Morris said.
"If you hang out with a bunch of winos,
you're a wino," he said. "He hung around
with the wrong people. He made a mistake,
and now he's going to pay for it."
In the indictment returned Wednesday,
James and Winfrey are charged with two
counts alleging they possessed the stolen
handgun and shotgun, and unlawfully used
marijuana while possessing each of those
Authorities have said the boy told them
he took the gun to school to scare Kayla.
Prosecutors have said they will not charge
the boy because he is too young to under-
stand his actions.
The indictment was unsealed after Mor-
ris' arrest yesterday morning at his resi-
dence, assistant federal prosecutor Robert
Haviland said in a statement.
Calls yesterday to Haviland were
referred to Gina Vitrano, spokeswoman for
Green's office. She declined to elaborate
about the indictment's charges.
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and
Firearms Special Agent Vera Fedorak said
the charges came following an investiga-
tion that focused on the home and any
adults who may have had illegal weapons

Gala Hallnark-Briaiwood Mall

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - An animal-rights group yester-
day pulled its "Got Beer?" ad campaign, which anti-drunk-
en driving activists had criticized as a misguided promotion
of underage drinking.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals unveiled the
campaign on college campuses this week. The Norfolk-
based group contends that milk cows and their calves suffer
on factory farms and that the fat and cholesterol in milk
make drinking beer look good by comparison.
PETA said it stopped the campaign out of respect for
concerns raised by Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

gural season in the league. Michigan swept the season's
only meetings by scores of 6-2 and 6-1.
But something can be said about being the hot team in
the tournament. And there is something to be said about
having the hot player. Nebraska-Omaha junior Jeff Hoggan,
who has been playing with a torn knee ligament since Janu-
ary, scored all three of the Mavericks' game-winning goals
in postseason play. He currently leads the league in game-
winning goals.
"It's the playoffs," freshman Andy Hilbert said. "They are
going to get up for it, they are on a really big high and they
will be unbelievable."
Fatigue could play against the Mavericks. The fact that
Nebraska-Omaha has traveled across four states and back in
the span of a week could factor into its play.
"The travel has taken its toll on us," Kemp said. "It's
hard since we've gotten out of our routine. We've been out
of that routine since last Thursday before we went to Mar-
quette. There was a large snowstorm, so we had to fly into
Green Bay and we missed our normal practice times. It's
been tough, but right now we're just going on adrenaline."
It's just another obstacle the Mavericks have overcome.
But it's the adrenaline that the Wolverines have to be careful
"If they get down by three or four goals -that would dis-
courage them enough to realize that they are really, really
tired," Berenson said. "But if they are up two or three goals,
do you think they are going to get tired? There is no way.
Their eyes will be shining and they will fired up.

of the regular season.
At that point, the Mavericks had only a remote possibility
of returning to Omaha. But the team proved the workers -
and the doubters - wrong as it defeated fourth-seeded North-
ern Michigan in Marquette in the best-of-three first round
series of the playoff. Bowling Green's defeat of Lake Superior
allowed Nebraska-Omaha to host the play-in game.
"It was not until Sunday night at around nine that the
crew started putting the ice down again," Kemp said. "There
were 60-degree temperatures in Omaha last weekend so the
workers had to work from Sunday night straight until after
the game on Tuesday in order to get the ice under playable
conditions for the play-in game. They never left the center
in those two days."
But in order to shock the NCAA selection committee for
a bid on Sunday, the Mavericks must first beat the Wolver-
ines at Joe Louis Arena - a place Michigan is quite famil-
iar with but a venue that Nebraska-Omaha has never played
in before.
"Half of our kids have never even been to Detroit before"
Kemp said.
The winner of the Michigan-Nebraska-Omaha matchup
will face the winner of the No. 2 Michigan State-No. 5
Notre Dame game in the final tomorrow evening. .
Michigan is the only team in the 12-team CCHA that the
Mavericks have not beaten or tied in their impressive inau-
