UNION CITY (KRON) – Friends and family are mourning the two juveniles shot and killed early Saturday morning in Union City.
The two boys, 11 and 14 years old, were killed in a shooting in the parking lot of Searles Elementary School around 1:30 a.m.
Investigators say the boys were parked in the parking lot, sitting in a van when gunmen shot at them.
Police say one victim died on the scene and the second died while being taken to a trauma center.
The New Haven Unified School District said one was a district student — the other a former student.
“At this time, we don’t know exactly what led up to this shooting — we don’t have any witnesses,” Lt. Steve Mendez said. “We don’t know exactly what they were doing in the parking lot at the school at the time.”
