Police say they’ve arrested two 16-year-olds from Long Beach in connection to the slaying of 17-year-old Khalil Saleem during a drive-by shooting at Silverado Park in January.

The teenagers, whose names were not released because they are juveniles, were taken into custody on suspicion of murder. Their arrests come nearly four months after police arrested a 17-year-old boy and another 16-year-old boy in connection to Saleem’s killing. Detectives believe all four suspects were involved in the shooting, police said.

“We’ve seen a recent increase in juveniles being arrested in connection to violent crimes, including murder,” Chief of Police Wally Hebeish said in a statement Wednesday afternoon. “Now, more than ever, we need to work with our partners to invest in our youth – it will take our whole community to disrupt this cycle of violence.”

Saleem was playing basketball at Silverado Park on Jan. 21 when police say a gunfight broke out between someone driving by the park in an SUV and another person who was also on the basketball courts, according to authorities.

Saleem—who wasn’t involved in the gunfight—was shot in the upper body and later died at the hospital, police said. Two other men at the courts were also struck but survived; one of them has since been released from the hospital.

While the investigation remains ongoing, at this time detectives believe the motive was gang-related. Saleem, who was a Lakewood High School student, was not involved with any gangs and had just shown up to the park to play basketball that day, according to his father.

Detectives will present the case against the teenagers, who are both being held without bail, to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office later this week for filing consideration, police said.
