Two teenagers have just been arrested over suspicion of killing two persons in separate incidents in June and July just outside Eastern Hills High School in Fort Worth, Texas.

The arrested boys were identified as 16-year old Jaris Brothers and 17-year old Damian Hernandez.

Brothers is facing a murder charge for the death of 17-year old Jaylen Patterson, who was shot and killed on June 7 in a parking lot just outside the perimeter of the Eastern Hills High School in the 5700 block of Shelton Street, near Weiler Boulevard.

Patterson, who hailed from Keller, sustained a gunshot wound on his neck and died the next day while undergoing treatment in an undisclosed hospital.
