Roseville — Two of three people who police suspect were involved in a Saturday shooting in a bar parking lot have been charged, police said Tuesday.

Robert Ridling and Sadiq Blevins, both 24 and of Warren, were charged Monday in court, according to Roseville Deputy Police Chief Donald Glandon.

Ridling has been charged with assault with intent to murder, felony firearm possession and larceny from a person. A judge set his bond at $1 million and scheduled his next court date for March 27.

Blevins was charged with receiving and concealing a firearm, accessory to a felony after the fact, tampering with evidence and possession of methamphetamine/Ecstasy. A judge set his bond at $50,000 and set his court date for next Wednesday.


A third suspect has yet to be arraigned. Police said he is a 27-year-old from Detroit and the county prosecutor's office has authorized a charge of reckless use of a firearm. Prosecutors allege the man brought the firearm to the bar and was shot in the leg.

Police said the charges stem from an altercation between several people at about 2:25 a.m. Saturday at The Spot Bar & Grill, 32456 Gratiot near Masonic.
