LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Police say a 17-year-old boy was killed and a second 17-year-old was wounded in a shooting that occurred when they reportedly tried to rob a man at an apartment complex in Little Rock.

The names of the teenagers were not released because they're juveniles.

A police report says one teen was found dead in a stairwell at the apartment complex and the second was taken by private vehicle to a hospital where he was taken with non-life threatening injuries.

Police say an 18-year-old man at the apartment complex told officers he exchanged gunfire with two males who tried to rob him. The man was questioned by police and released pending a review of the case by the prosecuting attorney's office
