Two men have been charged with second-degree murder after a teen's body was dumped in Metairie. 

The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office began investigating the homicide after 17-year-old Tyris James' body was found dumped in the 2300 block of North Arnoult Road. 

According to police, the victim was found suffering from at least one gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators believe there was some kind of argument in the car that led to the gunfire.

Valentin Martinez and Chicobi Smith, both 17, have been charged with second-degree murder in connection with the incident, according to a JPSO spokesman.
