The victims were identified as 15-year-old Jose Villarreal II and 14-year-old Julio Labrada. Officers took the teen who shot the firearm into custody, and said he'll face a manslaughter charge.
Miami-Dade County Public Schools officials confirmed that one of the victims was a student of theirs, while the other victim attended a charter school.
