First responders found the victims inside with gunshot wounds. Residents of the home were also inside at the time, but none were reported injured.

Fullerton police were able to track the suspect down through a combination of surveillance footage, witness statements, and evidence left behind at the scene. The teen reportedly knew the victims, who had ridden in the vehicle with him at some point before the shooting.

The boy, a Fullerton resident, has not been publicly identified due to his minor status.
