2 Teens Killed in Southeast Arlington Shooting


Two teens are dead after a shooting in Southeast Arlington at afternoon, police say.

The victims were boys believed to be 13 years old and 16 or 17 years old, Arlington Deputy Police Chief Chris Cook said.

The shooting happened at an apartment complex in the 6000 block of Clearwater Drive just after 1:30 p.m., Arlington police said.

Police said at least one other person was injured in the shooting and two others fled the scene.

The shooting stemmed from a disturbance at a nearby barbershop, police said.

“These are always senseless,” Cook said. “Anytime that you have some type of disturbance with teenagers — in the old days, I’m talking way back when I was growing up, a fistfight was a fistfight, but nowadays there is a lot of gun violence out here.”
