CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Police in Charlotte have arrested two juveniles after shots were fired at plainclothes officers near the scene of a deadly police shooting nine years ago.

The Charlotte Observer reports (http://bit.ly/1R1iJGJ) Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police on Thursday said a 14-year-old is facing multiple charges, including assault with a deadly weapon. A 13-year-old is charged with resisting arrest and possession of marijuana.

Police say plainclothes officers in the vicinity of an intersection where a person was seen firing a gun into the air followed the shooter and a second person headed for some woods. As the officers got out of their car, the person fired more rounds and fled into the woods. Both people were found and taken into custody.

In March 2007, two officers were shot and killed near the same intersection.
