Because the police officer used his gun, homicide detectives were assigned to the case and interviewed witnesses at the scene.

The names of the two teens arrested were not released because they are juveniles. One was booked on suspicion of battery and making criminal threats, and the other on suspicion of assault and battery.

It’s unclear what led to the dispute.

Wyatt said the off-duty officer is cooperating with the inquiry and has not been arrested. His name was not released.
