EDINBURG, Texas (AP) -- Two girls have been charged with murder in a South Texas drive-by shooting that left a 17-year-old innocent bystander dead.

The Monitor of McAllen reports state District Judge Jesse Contreras detailed the charges to the two juveniles in a Hidalgo County courtroom in Edinburg. They remain in the juvenile detention center, where they ve been ordered to undergo psychological evaluation.

Authorities say the two were riding in a van with five adults Oct. 5 when it pulled up to an empty lot and those inside opened fire on a crowd. Police say 17-year-old bystander Miguel Vasquez was fatally shot in the neck.

The Monitor reports the other five adults have also been charged with murder.
