GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Two teenagers, 18 and 16 years old, had their bonds set at $500,000 each in Brown County court as they were charged Monday afternoon with being party to the crime of attempted first-degree intentional homicide.

Anthony Simber, 18, and Avion Simbler, are also charged with possession of a narcotic and felony bail jumping.

The charges are for a shooting at an apartment on the 2600 block of Humboldt Road Saturday afternoon. Officers say the 20-year-old victim is still in the hospital but is expected to recover from his injuries.

According to Green Bay police, this was not a random attack. Capt. Jeff Brester says the parties involved knew each other.

Even though the two are charged, the shooting is still under investigation. Anyone with information that could help should call Green Bay Police at (920) 448-3200 and reference case #22-266341.

Police are relieved no one else was hurt Saturday.

“This is an apartment complex,” Brester noted. “The whole stretch of Humboldt Road has several densely populated apartments, so, yes, quite a few people were affected that live close by. Thankfully, nobody else was injured that was in the area, but we have been talking to all the neighbors to make sure everything is OK.”

Multiple agencies were on the scene as part of a mutual aid response.

“If there is a large-scale incident, such as a shooting or major accident, we can request assistance from other agencies to initially respond to the scene. get everything under control,” Capt. Brester explained. “On this incident, the call came in. We were unaware of the total magnitude of the call .-- how many people had been injured, how many suspects were there, et cetera -- so we did do a mutual aid and were assisted by UW-Green Bay Police, Brown County Sheriff’s Office, and the De Pere Police Department.”
