The shooting happened around 8:30 p.m. in the 300 block of Arkansas Street, Vallejo police Lt. Lee Horton said.  

Two other boys, ages 12 and 13, were shot at but were not hit, Horton said.

The suspects, a 13- and a 16-year-old boy, were found walking on the railroad tracks around the corner from where the shooting happened, police said.

They fled when officers arrived, but were captured, Horton said. Police recovered a pistol nearby. 

The 13-year-old suspect was booked into juvenile hall, Horton said. Police have not said whether the 16-year-old was booked.
