MARICOPA, Ariz. (AP) - Two teenage boys have been arrested in connection to the shooting death of a 20-year-old man in Maricopa.

The Casa Grande Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/2eUoIy5 ) that a 17-year-old and a 16-year-old are being held at the Pinal County jail on charges of first-degree murder and armed robbery with a deadly weapon.

According to the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded Monday night to reports of shooting in a residential neighborhood. When officers arrived, they found the victim dead in a pickup truck in a front yard. The man appeared to have died as a result of gunshot wounds.

Authorities tracked shoe prints from the victim’s vehicle to a residence in an unincorporated area of Maricopa. There they found the two suspects, one of whom had blood on his shoes.
