(GARY) - Gary police have arrested teenagers in two unrelated murders.

19-year-old Roderick Wiggins is charged with one of the deaths in a triple murder a year-and-a-half ago. Police say they're still investigating Wiggins in the other killings.

They say Wiggins admitted joining with accomplices in an attempt to bully 58-year-old Leonard Thomason out of testifying against them in court. Thomason, a 26-year-old woman and her boyfriend were shot to death.

Police have also arrested a 17-year-old in the shooting death of his uncle. Authorities say a fistfight broke out after a dice game at 28-year-old Marlon Boleware's house. The nephew allegedly retrieved a gun and killed him.

Boleware is the brother of a Gary police officer.
