An 18-year-old Kansas man has been charged in an April 28 shooting that wounded New York Giants rookie cornerback Corey Ballentine and killed his college teammate, Dwane Simmons.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Francisco Alejandro Mendez was charged Friday with first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder and five accounts of aggravated robbery.

Simmons and Ballentine were shot as they walked home from a party in Topeka, Kansas, just hours after the Giants selected Ballentine in the sixth round of the National Football League draft. Ballentine has since recovered. His case doesn't appear yet in online court records and his attorney, Victoria Chundak-Gallaway, didn't immediately reply to a phone message left Saturday at her office. Ballentine sustained a gunshot wound to his rear and Simmons died at the scene.
