STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (AP) - A 16-year-old boy is being held by police in eastern Ohio, accused of gunning down two young men in an apartment parking lot this week.

Police in Steubenville said 21-year-old Ryan Toson and 19-year-old Otavius Wilson were found wounded in the lot Wednesday night after shots rang out in the area. They were pronounced dead later at a hospital.

The 16-year-old boy was arrested early Thursday and appeared in court for a detention hearing later in the day. Police said they were still trying to determine a motive.

A police official said the juvenile's criminal record includes assault and theft charges.
