Questioning teen witnesses

If two teens, 17 and 19, discovered an apparently drowned couple in a pond, then called 911, how would the police question them? If the police don't find the witnesses particularly suspicious at the time, would they ask all their questions at the crime scene, or would the witnesses have to be formally interviewed? What sort of questions would they typically ask? Would the 17-year-old require parents being contacted/present at the time of questioning? I've checked Wikipedia and Googled many different keywords and phrases for this, but still don't have all the details. Oh, and the setting is a fairly small town in Washington, USA. Thanks in advance!
