Three of the teens are in custody
Three of the four teens wanted by the FBI for a string of violent carjackings last week have been arrested, authorities announced yesterday.

The FBI had shared stills from a convenient store's surveillance video earlier this week as it sought help from the public in identifying and apprehending the suspects.

From May 12 through May 16 the four were alleged to have been in nine carjackings across the city including in East Cleveland, Willoughby, the near west side on West 127th, Brooklyn, Euclid and Cleveland Heights. Guns were used in multiple incidents — one victim was shot in the leg after he fought back and the suspects fired shots at an off-duty police officer in Cleveland Heights last Saturday.

Four of the vehicles were recovered in East Cleveland.

Two teens were arrested, an FBI spokesperson announced, while one turned himself in and one remains at large.

They're charged with aggravated robbery.
