Late Tuesday night, Lockport police charged two teenage boys in connection to the shooting. Their names are not being released because of their juvenile status. They are 16 and 17 years old.

The boys were arraigned on Wednesday afternoon in Niagara Falls City Court's youth court. They are each charged with intentional homicide, a Class A felony, and criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree, a Class C felony. An indictment has not been filed yet. The district attorney's office can present additional charges to a grand jury.

The Lockport Police Department asks that the public continue to send them tips, and indicated in the news conference on Wednesday afternoon that tips had been helpful in the case so far.

The suspects are being held on $500,000 cash bail or $1 million bond. They are due back in court on October 26 at 9:30 a.m.
