LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Four Las Cruces teenagers have been indicted in a fatal shooting during a home invasion last month.

Prosecutors say a Dona Ana County grand jury indicted three 18-year-old boys and a 17-year-old boy in the case.

All four are facing multiple charges including first-degree felony murder in the death of 17-year-old Jaycob Alba.

Authorities say Alba and the suspects went to a mobile home park on July 31. The suspects allegedly shot into a vehicle and a home.

The home’s occupant was asleep and suffered a gunshot wound to the foot.

Authorities say Alba was outside when he was shot in the head.

They say the four other teens fled the area, but were later arrested by county sheriff’s deputies.

Prosecutors say they intend to try the teenagers as adults.
