We spoke to several neighbors who live on 89th and Becher where the shooting happened early Sunday morning. We also spoke to both boys family members who all describe them as good well mannered kids. 
Trajan Edwards was 17 years old. His brother C.J 19 years old. 
After a stand-off with police -- a 14-year-old  who officers suspect is responsible came out of the house where the shooting happened with his hands up..
A day later, a 13-year-old also taken into custody in connection with the case.
