SEATTLE (AP) — The King County Sheriff's Office has arrested two men it believes were involved in the killing of a 16-year-old boy whose body was found in the Green River near Auburn last month.

The Seattle Times reports a 20-year-old man was arrested in Federal Way Tuesday, and a 28-year-old man was arrested there Wednesday following a tense moment in which he pulled out a gun and was shot at by a SWAT officer.

Sheriff's spokesman Ryan Abbott says the man was not struck by the gunfire.

Detectives believe Juan Carlos Con Guzman, a student at Mt. Rainier High School in Des Moines, was at a secluded location with the suspects on Sept. 10.

They believe the 20-year-old suspect hit Con Guzman with his hands, feet and a baseball bat and the 28-year-old suspect hacked at Con Guzman's neck with a machete.
