A 15-year-old male has been arrested in connection with a February shooting that killed two teens, one of whom was a student at Valley High School in Sacramento, the Stockton Police Department said Wednesday night.

The double homicide occurred Feb. 24 in the 7000 block of Montauban Avenue, where two boys aged 14 and 15 were found with gunshot wounds just after midnight. One died at the scene and the other died at a hospital, police said.

Stockton police said Wednesday that the homicide suspect was arrested in northeast Stockton and has been booked into San Joaquin County Juvenile Hall. He has not been identified.

The Stockton Police Department identified the 14-year-old victim as Nicholas Sihalath of Stockton and 15-year-old Advan Vang of Sacramento.

An Elk Grove Unified School District spokeswoman said in February that the 15-year-old victim was a student at Valley High School, but did not identify the minor by name.
