The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports officers were dispatched Wednesday afternoon to a west side residence where they found a teenage boy had been shot in his upper body. Family and friends identified him as 17-year-old Da'Qwan Jones-Morris, a senior at Henry Sibley High School in Mendota Heights and captain of the football team.
    
St. Paul police say two males - a 16-year-old and a 15-year-old - are in custody on suspicion of murder.
    
Meanwhile, the second shooting happened during a gas station melee when a federal marshal who happened on the scene opened fire, wounding a suspect about 5 p.m.
    
The city has had 29 killings this year, the most in 25 years.
