East Palo Alto police arrested two boys in connection to the fatal shooting of a 15-year-old boy.

Authorities said they served two search warrants Thursday morning in East Palo Alto and Palo Alto and arrested the boys in connection to the June 13 homicide in the alley near Manhattan and Euclid. 

Officers also seized a semi-automatic pistol with an extended magazine from one of the suspect's home, police said. 

Both youths were booked into Juvenile Hall on murder charges, police said.

Police credited "the presence of privately owned surveillance cameras and the availability of the footage for making the arrests and the seizure of the firearm in this case possible."

Police would not release the suspects' identities because they are both minors. The identity of the 15-year-old has also not been released. 

The connection between all the boys was not revealed, and neither was a motive. 

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call Acting Commander Angel Sanchez at (650) 853-3154.
