SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) - Two Northern California high school students have been charged as adults with murder for the shooting death of a classmate.

The Marin County district attorney’s office also charged 17-year-old Juan Carlos Martinez Henriquez and 16-year-old Edwin Guevara Tuesday with attempted murder for the gunshot and stabbing injuries another classmate sustained on a Marin County hiking trail last week. All four students attended Novato High School, about 20 miles north of San Francisco.

The two suspects were arrested Friday and have not yet been appointed lawyers. Authorities are searching for a third suspect thought to have participated in the attack on the two students Wednesday.

Prosecutors also charged 20-year-old Elmer Fernando Machado-Rivera with being an accessory after the fact. Machado-Rivera has not yet been appointed a lawyer.
