FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - Court documents point to a drug-related robbery for the Thanksgiving Day shooting that killed three men and wounded two others in Fort Wayne.

An Allen County court filing made Monday says the wounded men told police investigators that one of the slain men was selling marijuana from the house on the city's south side. The survivors said two attackers tried to rob them.

Authorities say 20-year-old Colton Messmer, 23-year-old Joevonn Johnson and 21-year-old Tracey Andrews were killed. One survivor was flown to an Indianapolis hospital in critical condition, while the other was wounded in the back.

Prosecutors charged 22-year-old Kameron Joyner with five counts of aggravated battery. He is jailed awaiting a scheduled Thursday court hearing. Court records don't list a defense attorney. Police are searching for another 22-year-old man.
