Police have arrested two suspects they say are responsible for the double murder of two teens in broad daylight last month. Matthew Clifford, 19, of San Jose and an unnamed 17-year-old were arrested on suspicion of the May 26 shooting of 15-year-old Christian Comilang and 16-year-old Johnson Cular, police said today. Comilang and Cular were shot in the 300 block of Caribe Way at about 6:30 p.m. that night.

One of the two teens was pronounced dead at the scene and the other was transported to a hospital but later succumbed to his injuries. Police have not identified the motive of the killings, but have said that it is not believed to be gang-related.

Family and friends have said that the two victims were friends since elementary school and were students at Independence High School. Clifford was booked into Santa Clara County Jail and the juvenile suspect was booked into juvenile hall, both on suspicion of murder.
