ABBEVILLE (AP) — An Abbeville teenager faces murder charges after two brothers were shot and died from their wounds.

Police say the department received a call of "shots fired" just after 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Abbeville Police said witnesses to the shooting pointed investigators to a 17-year-old suspect, who was booked into the Vermilion Parish Correctional Center on two counts of first-degree murder. It was not immediately known if he has an attorney.

The victims' names were not released.

Police have not released a motive or details about what sparked the shootings.
