Three adults and a teenager were arrested and charged in the slaying of a 17-year-old boy during a botched marijuana deal in Prince William County.

Police said Saturday that they had arrested the four suspects in the July 12 fatal shooting that occurred in the 4700 block of Still Place near Minnieville Road in Woodbridge.

Virginia law does not require the release of the names of juvenile victims.

According to police, the three adult suspects met the victim for a marijuana deal. The suspects had been planning to rob the victim, who was shot and killed.
