WINDSOR, Calif. (AP) - Three teens are awaiting extradition to California following their arrest in Mexico in a shooting that killed a 15-year-old boy and wounded three others.

Sonoma County sheriff's officials say the teens were arrested in the state of Sonora on Monday morning and booked into Pima County jail in Arizona. They are suspected of homicide in the June 22 shooting outside a home in Windsor. The Associated Press is not naming them because they are juveniles.

Sheriff's officials had identified the trio as suspects shortly after the shooting, which killed Nathaniel Torres and left three other boys wounded.

The victims were attending a party.

A fourth person, 21-year-old Sergio Quiroz, has been arrested on suspicion of being an accessory.

Sheriff's officials have not disclosed a motive for the shooting.
