DALLAS (AP) Police say two 16-year-old boys targeted and killed their 17-year-old classmate at a North Texas high school.

Authorities say the two teens were spotted Saturday night after trying to bury the body of Ivan Mejia, a student at Wylie East High School near Dallas. Police in Wylie say the boys killed Mejia on a road behind the Wylie school.

Wylie Police Sgt. Donna Valdepena would not say Monday how Mejia died, but said police had evidence the boys planned the attack and specifically targeted Mejia.

A 911 call about a car veering off a highway Saturday led police to a wooded area in Garland, where police say they spotted the teens.

The two are being held on murder charges at a juvenile detention facility in Collin County.
