PHOENIX — The Phoenix Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying three suspects who shot two 15-year-old teens in December.

The teens were shot around 9:13 p.m. near Peoria and 19th avenues by two white males and one Hispanic male, all suspected to be in their late teens, authorities said in a press release.

Afterward, they ran east on Sahuaro Drive, the release said.

The 15-year-old victims were taken to a local hospital for emergency medical care.

The suspects all stand at approximately 5-foot-6 tall, weigh around 130 pounds and have brown hair, according to the release.

The three male suspects were seen wearing a red hoodie, a grey long sleeved shirt and a black sweater, authorities said.

The investigation remains ongoing.

Anyone with information about the case was asked to call the Phoenix Police Department at 602-262-6151 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS (948-6377) or 480-TESTIGO (837-8446) for Spanish.
