WOODBURN, Ore. -- Two men have been arrested in connection with the deadly shooting of a teen in Woodburn last May.

Javier Sanchez Perez and Erasmo Lopez, Jr. were arrested and will be arraigned in court.

Police said a group of people confronted 19-year-old Tomas Montes-Sanchez at his home wanting to fight him, but he refused. Then, some time later, a larger group returned to his home and shots were fired.

Montes-Sanchez died of bullet wounds.

Some neighbors interviewed shortly after the deadly shooting said they thought it was gang-related. But others argued that the victim was not in a gang.
