2 teens arrested in Ohio slaying of 15-year-old

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police in central Ohio have arrested a 17-year-old and 15-year-old in last week's fatal shooting of another teen in an after-school fight.

Columbus police say the boys were arrested this week in the Jan. 17 shooting death of 15-year-old Kauwaun Coleman.

The shooting happened soon after a group of students left a nearby high school together and an altercation began in an alley near a McDonald's restaurant where police found the wounded ninth-grader.

Police say the accused teens have lengthy criminal records. Prosecutors have asked for at least one of the cases to be transferred to adult court.
