NBC 6 isn’t naming the suspects, because of their ages. The name of the slaying victim hasn’t been released.

The events began early Wednesday. About 4:30 a.m., police responded to the store after receiving 911 calls that several men were involved in a fight there.

When police arrived, the pair ran away, police said. But other officers quickly caught up to them, Flournoy said.

She described her son as a quiet boy.
