WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Police in North Carolina say two teens accused in a shooting involving a Texas man are now charged with murder after the victim died.

Winston-Salem police say in a news release Monday that 28-year-old Tevin Lamar Bonner of El Paso, Texas, died on June 22, five days after he was found in the street with at least one gunshot wound in his back. According to police, Bonner was in Winston-Salem as part of his job installing alarm systems and had been in Louisiana and High Point for work the week before he was shot.

Police say a 13-year-old and a 15-year-old are now charged with murder. When they were initially charged, a police spokesman said the teens and the victim appear to have known each other.
