WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) - Authorities say two 16-year-old girls were shot to death in Kentucky, and four people are in custody.

Winchester police Capt. James Hall told news outlets Kayla Holland was found dead at the scene Tuesday night, and Adrianna Castro was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The local court clerk’s office says 18-year-old Mikaela Buford, 24-year-old Denzel Hill, and 22-year-old Darian Skinner are charged with complicity to murder. A fourth suspect, 18-year-old Ronnie Ellis, was booked into the jail later Wednesday on a charge of complicity to murder.

Hall says the victims were visiting the house, and it’s unknown if they were the intended targets.

It’s unclear if Buford, Hill, Skinner and Ellis have lawyers. Buford’s mother, Rachael Miller, said her daughter was driving a friend’s vehicle and didn’t know it would result in the girls’ fatal shooting
