During a news conference, Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said he believes the suspects, ages 14 and 15, “hit the wrong house” in a West Bexar County neighborhood at about 12:30 a.m., Tuesday.
“I don’t think they’re showing any remorse, whatsoever,” Salazar told reporters.
Both teens face charges of first-degree murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, WOAI-TV reports.
According to the outlet, 25-year-old Novita Brazil has been identified as the victim of the shooting.
A GoFundMe For The Victim Novita Brazil
A GoFundMe for Brazil describes her as “the sweetest person you would ever meet. She was kind, selfless, funny, loving, adventurous, and had a heart of gold.”
A second woman who, according to Salazar, was an Airbnb guest living with the victim and was shot in the leg, had a non-life-threatening wound.
Brazil was “wholly blameless,” according to Salazar. She was just up working late into the night on her computer when she passed away.
Salazar claims that more than 100 shot casings were found at the crime scene.
The station adds that the teenage suspects, who led law enforcement on a car chase, were found 10 miles away at the rear of a baseball field.
In addition to the murder and assault charges, the 14-year-old suspect has also been charged with evading arrest with a motor vehicle and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, while the 15-year-old suspect has been charged with evading arrest on foot, per the station.
It was unclear Thursday if the pair entered a plea to the charges. Lawyer information was not readily available.
