A 19-year-old man and another in his 20s are now in custody as persons of interest over a carjacking that killed three young siblings in Philadelphia on Friday.
Police in North Philadelphia say they used finger prints from the stolen SUV – which rammed into a family selling fruit for their church – as well as a bloody t-shirt found near the crash scene, to locate the suspects.
Neither has been named and charges have not been filed, but their capture comes after authorities posted a $110,000 reward was posted for the pair.
‘You can run but you can’t hide but for so long. You’ve got to pay for what you done,’ the victims’ uncle, Antonio Moore, told NBC Philadelphia.
The men are accused of killing 15-year-old Keiearra Williams, 10-year-old Thomas Reed and 7-year-old Terrence Moore.
The children’s 34-year-old mother, Keisha Williams, remains in critical condition at Temple University Hospital.
The two suspects fled on foot after crashing the stolen car Friday morning at a North Philadelphia intersection.
They had first carjacked a real estate agent at gunpoint and later forced her into the back seat of her SUV, authorities said.
The 45-year-old agent was also hospitalized afterward, as was a 65-year-old woman helping the family with the fruit stand. Their names weren’t being released, and their conditions weren’t immediately available Saturday.
‘All they said was my grandma got hit, and there were bodies everywhere,’ Sakina Brown, granddaughter of the 65-year-old victim, told The Philadelphia Inquirer.
