LACEY, Wash. -- Two teens were arrested Thursday night at a Pinehurst, Idaho, gas station and held for investigation of a fatal shooting Wednesday night in Lacey.

The Olympian reports one is a 17-year-old accused of firing the shot that killed 34-year-old Daniel L. Smith of Lacey during an attempted marijuana rip-off. All five suspects are now in custody. Three are jailed in Thurston County.

Police say a license plate reader identified the suspects' car, and the two are held Friday at the Shoshone County Detention Center in Wallace, Idaho.

Lacey police say the group arranged to buy marijuana from Smith but tried to rob him instead. He was shot as he tried to drive away in an apartment parking lot.
