CARPENTERSVILLE, Ill. (WLS) -- Two teenagers have been charged in a triple shooting that left a 17-year-old Carpentersville boy dead last week, the Kane County State's Attorney's Office said Wednesday.

Medina, 19, of Carpentersville and his 16-year-old cousin, also of Carpentersville, have been charged with first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, aggravated discharge of a firearm and possession of a firearm while ineligible for a firearm owner's identification card, the state's attorney's office said.

Medina was driving his vehicle last Wednesday, with his cousin in the passenger seat, when one or both of them fired multiple shots from a handgun in the direction of a vehicle with multiple people inside near the 1-99-block of Robin Road, officials said.

Anthony R. Aragon Jr., 17, of Carpentersville was shot in the head, and died that night at Advocate Sherman Hospital, the Kane County Coroner's Office said.

A second victim was shot, and continues to recover, and a third was grazed, officials said.
