Four teens arrested in Orlando park shooting

Tuesday morning, two 15 year olds and two 17 year olds were locked up behind bars.

Orlando Police say Ludovic Francois 17, Conroy Smith 15, Javontay Whyte 17, and Delton Roberts 15, were the four teens in the car that pulled up on Lescot Lane, got out and fired several shots into Poppy Park. 

Dozens of people, including children, were hanging out and playing basketball. 

Jerald Barnes, 10, knows the two children who were shot. He said one of the boys who was shot is just 11, the other just 16. 

Both boys have been released from the hospital. We're told the 16-year-old was grazed in the back. 

Police say Francois fired 26 rounds into the crowded park. Investigators say Smith shot off five shots.
 
The motive is unknown at this point. An Orlando Police officer witnessed the whole thing and pursued the suspects' car, catching up with it down the road.
