ROCKY MOUNT, North Carolina — Two men have been charged with murder in the shooting death of a 15-year-old killed late last week in Rocky Mount.

Authorities tell local media outlets that 18-year-old Te'von Lamont Mabry and 19-year-old Michael Antoine Lyons Jr. are each charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder in the death of Lavontae Brown.

Authorities found the teen on Friday afternoon. He was taken to a hospital, where he later died.

Both men were being held without bond, and it wasn't immediately known if they had attorneys.
