Two teenage boys in Glendale, Arizona, are accused of opening fire on police officers in an unprovoked attack.

Glendale authorities said Wednesday both boys, ages 13 and 14, have been booked on several felony charges including aggravated assault, unlawful discharge of a firearm, and attempted murder.

Officers were looking into a robbery call Monday evening when they were nearly hit by several rounds of gunfire.

Through ShotSpotter technology, investigators traced the gunfire from a nearby apartment complex. They located security cameras that had footage of the shooting.
