Two Pennsylvania teenagers have been arrested and charged with multiple counts of attempted homicide of a law enforcement officer, aggravated assault, conspiracy, among other charges, in the ambush shooting attempt of police officers in Lancaster County, PA on Friday.

A total of four Columbia, PA police officers were targeted in Friday's ambush which left none of the officers injured.

Marquell Rentas, 17, and Trenton Nace, 18, are both being charged as adults. Reports indicate that they are also cousins. 

Police indicated that as Rentas was being arrested he could be heard screaming, "I'm the one who did it. I'm the one who shot. My cousin didn't do it."

He added, "I was shooting at you. F--- you police."
