Fairfax County police identified the teen who died as Kevin Johnson, 16, of 4435 Pembrook Village Drive.

The other teen shot is a 14-year-old boy. Police say he is in stable condition at the hospital.

A police news release says several people who knew each other were in the home in the 4300 block of Pembrook Village Drive when an 18-year-old discharged a weapon, striking the teens.
