GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Authorities in Greensboro say a 13-year-old is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in a December double homicide.

A statement from Greensboro police says officers arrested the teenager without incident Thursday in connection with a shooting on Dec. 2. He faces charges in the shooting deaths of 23-year-old Ernest Lemark Cuthbertson and 44-year-old Jeffrey Devine Hampton. Police said the teen was an acquaintance of Cuthbertson.

Detectives say the shootings followed a dispute among Cuthbertson, Hampton, a 17-year-old also charged with murder in the case, and others. The detectives say the cause of the dispute and motive for the shootings remain unclear.

The News & Record of Greensboro reports (https://bit.ly/1Rw7zJL ) Guilford County Chief Assistant District Attorney Howard Neumann said the teen will likely appear in juvenile court this week.
