The youths are charged connection with the shooting death of 19-year-old Christopher Lewis Saturday night on Bonaparte Boulevard, the city's 37th homicide of 2013

Investigators determined the boys met the victim on Facebook and arranged a meeting with Lewis. Chief Kevin Murphy say both suspects showed up with guns, robbed Lewis and then shot him.  Lewis was transported to an area hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
