NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police have arrested two 16-year-old boys, both wearing electronic monitoring devices, in the slaying of 35-year-old pizza delivery driver Richard Yeager.

Interim Superintendent Michael Harrison announced the arrests Tuesday at a news conference. Their identities were not released because of their ages.

Harrison says both face a charge of first-degree murder in the shooting death of Yeager, who was killed shortly after midnight Monday. His car was stolen minutes after he delivered a pizza.

NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports (https://bit.ly/1rtTNvj ) the suspects were arrested Monday night.

Investigators also used tracking information from the suspects’ monitoring devices to link one of them to another violent carjacking that happened Saturday. Police say a 50-year-old woman was pistol-whipped in her driveway and the suspects fled with her purse and 2008 silver Volvo.
