Two teens face first-degree murder charges in connection with a fatal shooting earlier this month in western Boca Raton.

Carlos Dacosta, 53, was shot and killed May 3 at 9:47 p.m. in the 6600 block of Hollandaire Dr. West at Amberwoods of Boca. 

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said Sunday that two 17-year-old suspects are charged with first-degree murder in the case.

The teens are also charged with burglary and shooting into an occupied dwelling.
