MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Police in Montgomery say two teenage boys have been arrested in the shooting death of a 19-year-old man.

Police Chief Kevin Murphy says the teens met Christopher Lewis after talking to him on the Internet and robbed him when they met in person. His body was found Saturday night.

Officials say the 15-year-old suspect could be charged as an adult, and the 13-year-old suspect is being charged as a juvenile. Their identities have not been released and authorities say both teens were carrying guns when they met Lewis.

Authorities say Lewis' death was Montgomery's 37th homicide on 2013. The city recorded 32 homicides total in 2012.
