An 18-year-old has been charged in the December 2012 murder of two teenagers in Pleasantville, Atlantic County.

Police arrested the alleged shooter on Thursday afternoon but are not releasing his name because he was 17 at the time and has been charged as a juvenile.

The suspect is facing charges in the murders of 19-year-old Taron Williams and 13-year-old Todd Mitchell.

Police say on Dec. 5, Williams and Mitchell were found by a home on Woodland Avenue with multiple gunshot wounds.

Both were taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center where they were later pronounced dead.

The 18-year-old suspect faces murder, robbery and weapons charges. He remains in a juvenile detention center pending a hearing.
