After a preliminary investigation, police arrested the teenagers the following morning around 8 a.m. and booked them into the Pulaski County Detention Center. 

Police have not revealed a motive for the shoooting.

Both suspects are expected to be charged with capital murder, and Scarver faces an additional felony count of discharging a firearm from a vehicle and two counts of committing a terroristic act, Little Rock’s KLRT-TV reported.

A judge ordered both be held without bond.

Since they are being charged with capital murder, the two could face the death penalty.
