Authorities say two teenagers have been arrested in Wisconsin in connection to the Chicago shooting death of a 28-year-old freelance photographer.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports Sunday the juveniles were arrested in Racine, Wisconsin, last week on first-degree murder warrants in the July slaying of Wil Lewis. Authorities say the Chicago teens were the gunman and an accomplice in the North Side shooting.

The Associated Press generally does not identify juvenile suspects.

Police charged 31-year-old Eric Vaughn with first-degree murder in July. They say he supplied the gun and drove the getaway car.

Prosecutors have said the gunman was aiming at a member of a rival gang when he shot Lewis.

One teen is being held on $750,000 bond by the Racine County Sheriff's Department. The other is being held without bond.
