HOUSTON (AP) - Houston police say two suspects have been arrested in the drive-by fatal shooting of a 6-year-old boy as he slept in a house.

Police identified the suspects Thursday as 20-year-old Oscar Ollervides and 24-year-old Alexis Arturo Cuapio. Both are charged with murder in the death of Moises Jimenez. A third person is still being questioned.

Homicide Sgt. Steven Murdock said the pair killed the 6-year-old boy and wounded his 11-year-old brother in a Sept. 25 drive-by shooting as part of a feud with the boys’ teenage brothers. Murdock also said the shootings may be gang-related.

Investigators have said the two brothers were asleep when someone inside a vehicle opened fire into the residence, then drove away. The younger sibling was dead at the scene.
