PHOENIX (AP) -- Authorities say a 19-year-old man has been fatally shot at a Phoenix home.

Phoenix police say the incident occurred around 2 p.m. Tuesday near Ninth Avenue just north of Dunlap Avenue, in the Sunnyslope area.

Police say they're looking for a 15-year-old boy and 17-year-old boy who were with the victim, Pedro Antunez-Andrade, when he was shot.

Investigators say the two teens took off before officers arrived.

"There didn't appear to be any arguments going on before the shooting so we just don't know why or what's going on," said Officer James Holmes of the Phoenix Police Department

Police have served a search warrant at the home where it happened, hoping to find clues that will help them solve this crime.

"It's the worst thing that ever happened to us," said Antunez-Andrade's sister, Leslie. She fought back tears as she described losing her younger brother.

"I know they will find the person who did it and everything will be OK," she said.
