GEORGE — The Grant County sheriff's office says two people have been arrested in the shooting that seriously wounded two teens Sunday night in the town of George.

Deputies and Quincy police arrested 21-year-old Hector M. Contreras Rodriguez of Quincy and a 16-year-old boy. They were jailed early Monday for investigation of attempted murder.

Witnesses told investigators the victims were among four people sitting in a car in front of a home when a car pulled up behind them. Two people got out, fired shots that wounded two and then drove away.

A 16-year-old boy is wounded in the torso, knee and face. A 14-year-old girl is wounded in the torso. They were taken to Quincy Valley Medical Center and then airlifted to trauma centers in serious condition.
