Police said the two teenagers were shot when they attempted to burglarize a house in the 1000 block of Arcade Boulevard. The two occupants of the home, a woman and a man, were not injured.

Police did not identify which occupant of the home shot the teens. However, police portrayed the shootings as a self-defense incident and that they appeared to be justified based on a preliminary investigation.
