GLENDALE, Calif. - The bodies of two teenage boys were found Sunday evening in a Glendale elementary school yard, authorities said.
The bodies were discovered at 8:07 p.m. when a resident noticed the youths lying on the grounds of Valley View Elementary School, said Agent Rodney Brooks of the Glendale Police Department.
The resident thought the boys, who are between 13 and 17, might be sleeping and shouted at them, Brooks said. When there was no response, the neighbor called paramedics who arrived at the scene and determined both teenagers were dead.
Police were summoned to the school and the department's robbery-homicide unit was later called out, Brooks said.
There was blood at the scene and the bodies showed evidence of violence, Brooks said. No other details were released.
One of the boys was from Glendale, but authorities were still trying to determine where the other boy lived. The youths were friends with each other and one of them was the subject of a recent missing persons report, Brooks said.
Authorities were withholding the names and exact ages of the boys.
Glendale is about eight miles north of downtown Los Angeles.
