Authorities have charged three people with fatally shooting two teenage brothers in what Syracuse police say was an attempted robbery set up by one of the suspects.

Police Chief Frank Fowler says Thursday that two men, aged 19 and 23, and a 17-year-old girl were arrested Wednesday and charged with murder and attempted robbery.

They're accused of gunning down 17-year-old Daniel Diaz-Morrero and 19-year-old Ismael Diaz-Marrero around 5 p.m. Tuesday on the city's west side.

Fowler says the shootings occurred during a robbery attempt set up when the girl contacted the brothers and asked them to meet her. Police say the 19-year-old suspect shot and killed the brothers during the encounter.

The older brother was a sophomore at Le Moyne College, in suburban DeWitt. His sibling was a senior at a Syracuse high school.
