    Police have released the names and mugshots of two young men accused in the shooting death of a high school student in Concord.

    The Contra Costa County District Attorney's Office filed charges Wednesday in the murder case against Kristhiam Uceda, 20, and Bryan Sermeno-Chachagua, 18, both of Concord. Uceda was charged with murder and Sermeno-Chachagua was charged with hiding the gun after the shooting, police said.

    Three other suspects arrested are not being named because they are minors. One of the unnamed suspects, a 17-year-old male, was charged with murder for driving the involved vehicle in the shooting. Another 17-year-old male was also charged with hiding the gun after the shooting. Police said no charges have been filed at this time against the fifth suspect.
