Boys, 13 and 14, Arrested on Murder Charge in North Texas Shooting
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Police say two boys, aged 13 and 14, have been arrested on a capital murder charge in the fatal shooting of a woman in her Fort Worth apartment.
Fort Worth Police Lt. Paula Fimbres tells KXAS-TV that 31-year-old Yesenia Gutierrez was shot during an attempted burglary Friday afternoon.
The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's office says Gutierrez was shot in the neck and head and ruled her death a homicide. The two suspects are confined to a juvenile detention center. Authorities haven't released their names.
Police arrested the boys after linking them to the shooting during a traffic stop. It's unclear who was driving the car.
The Texas Juvenile Justice Department says more than 130,000 minors have entered the juvenile justice system this year.
