PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

One teenager is dead, a second is in the hospital and the young man police say shot them is facing murder charges after an apparent drug deal took a violent turn over the weekend.

Phoenix police officers responded to the area of 67th Avenue and Baseline Road at around 1: 35 p.m. Sunday and found that two teenage males had been shot in what witnesses say was an illegal drug transaction.

One of the teens died of his injuries on scene. Police identified him on Monday as 14-year-old Jovanny Pelayo. Investigators said he was armed.

The other boy, a 15-year-old whose name has not been released, was taken to a local hospital in critical condition.

Sgt. Jonathan Howard said officers located the suspects' vehicle fleeing the area and detained four people who are believed to be involved. 

One of them is Robert Wells, 18. Police are not identifying the other three at this point; two of them are 15 years and the third is 16.

"Evidence discovered to date indicates that the males in the vehicle, which had been stolen in a residential burglary, were in the area to sell drugs to Pelayo and his accomplice," Howard explained in an email update Monday afternoon. "During the illegal drug transaction, Pelayo, armed with a stolen handgun, began to rob Wells of money, property and drugs. Wells shot Pelayo and his accomplice before fleeing the area."

Howard said Wells was booked on suspicion of second-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder and burglary. It's not clear what charges, if any, the teens detained with Wells might face.
