BOSTON (AP) - Two young men have been arrested in connection with the shooting death of a 17-year-old boy in a Boston apartment building.

Nineteen-year-old Robert Silva-Prentice, of Boston, and 18-year-old Malik Phillips, of Waltham, were charged with murder Saturday in the April 21 slaying.

Police say officers had responded to a report of shots fired in the city’s Roxbury neighborhood and found Yanuel Viloria suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Silva-Prentice and Phillips are set to be arraigned on Monday. It’s unclear if they have retained lawyers.
