DALLAS - Dallas police have arrested two teenagers, ages 14 and 15, for the murder of a 16-year-old whose death was featured on Trackdown.
Rivera was fatally shot last month, and the break in the case came after FOX 4 aired surveillance video of the suspects earlier this week on Shaun Rabb’s Trackdown segment.
Right after Trackdown aired Wednesday night, a FOX 4 viewer called a tip into CrimeStoppers, by Thursday night, an arrest warrant was signed, and Friday morning, the arrests were made.

No information has been released about the suspects because they are juveniles.
While the details of how they were arrested are limited, Rivera's family is thankful an arrest was made.
Surveillance video from that day was key for investigators.
Minutes before Rivera was killed, he was seen driving in a neighborhood off Cedar Crest Boulevard, near Kiest.
Shortly after, security video showed the murder suspects walking in the same direction.
Dallas police said they got into the SUV and Rivera was shot. He then crashed the SUV into a home.
Information about the suspects is limited because they are teenagers.
Police have not yet said which one of the two teens arrested actually fired the gun, or whether they knew Rivera.
FOX 4 reached out to Rivera’s family.
His mother said she did not want to do an on-camera interview, but added that her family is thankful Dallas police made an arrest.
