SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) - Pinal County authorities say two teenagers have been arrested in a fatal shooting last weekend in San Tan Valley that appears to be drug related.

County Sheriff’s officials say 20-year-old Tyran Simmons was found with a gunshot wound at the scene Saturday and he later died at a hospital.

Sheriff’s officials say a 17-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl are in custody in connection with the incident.

Their names aren’t being released because they are juveniles.

Authorities say it’s believed the teenage boy shot the man and then fled the scene in a car in which the girl was the driver.

Sheriff’s officials didn’t immediately say if the victim was buying or selling drugs at the time of the shooting.
