NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — A 17-year-old and a 19-year-old have been charged with first-degree murder after police say they attempted to retaliate against people who robbed marijuana from them.

The Norman Transcript reports that Anthony Bing Alexander Mundell and a 17-year-old were charged Thursday in the death of 41-year-old Kenneth Keeling on December 14th.

Court documents say the pair told a friend they found the people who they thought robbed them. Mundell told police their friend started shooting in the people's direction.

A bullet ended up hitting Keeling, who was standing outside of his apartment. He was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

An arrest warrant has been issued for the 17-year-old and Mundell's arrest. No bond has been set for them.

It wasn't immediately clear if they have attorneys.
