ELMIRA, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say two 17-year-olds have been charged with violating state environmental conservation laws for shooting a deer on the grounds of an upstate New York school earlier this month.

The Star-Gazette of Elmira reports that the teens used a shotgun to a kill a buck in the schoolyard behind the Elmira Free Academy on the night of December 5, 2013.

Police say the teens, both males, also had a compound bow with them and were using a spotlight when the deer was killed.

The state Department of Environmental Conservation says the charges against the teens include discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a school, hunting deer with the aid of a light and taking wildlife from a motor vehicle.

Elmira police say their investigation is still open and charges are pending.
