DIANA, Texas (AP) Two 14-year-old boys have been detained in the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old East Texas youth whose body was found in a vehicle.

The Upshur County Sheriff's Office says deputies Sunday night responded to a call about a suspicious vehicle in Diana. Officers located the body of Jacob Michael Johnson.

The sheriff's office Wednesday reported preliminary autopsy results indicate Johnson died of two gunshot wounds to the head. Justice of the Peace B.H. Jameson says the two 14-year-old suspects remained in custody.

The sheriff's office on Thursday did not immediate provide details on charges.

Diana is a town of about 600, located 125 miles east of Dallas.
