Arrests made in double-slaying of Maryland teens

Pallbearers transport the casket to the hearse after the June 7 memorial service for Shadi Adi Najjar 17

Investigators say they found 30 shell casings at the scene, fired from multiple guns, CBS Baltimore reports.

It remained unclear whether there'd been a motive for killing Ziberov, or if he was simply "in the wrong place at the wrong time", Manger said.

Najjar, who was in the driver's seat, was shot four times, while Ziberov was shot 10, Manger said.

Police have arrested Jose Canales-Yanez, 25 (left), Roger Garcia, 19 (center), and Edgar Garcia-Gaona, 24 (right), in connection with the boys' deaths.

Montgomery County police said they would reveal more details at a news conference Saturday night in Gaithersburg. At least two gunmen, believed to be in another auto, fired some 30 rounds at the vehicles.

Friends and family of the two honor roll teens were devastated by the news of their deaths.

"During the investigation it was learned from a friend of Najjar's that Najjar had committed a drug-related robbery in December of 2016 or January of 2017, where it was rumored that he had stolen drugs from a female during a drug transaction", the police's statement read.

'May God punish who did this to my son.

Trump Ends Obama Deferred Deportation Plan
But he's taken a softer line on the program affecting young immigrants, who are sometimes referred to as "Dreamers". But immigration activists had remained anxious that the administration might still eliminate the program.

"It's believed that this is the robbery that Najjar, the victim in the homicide, was rumored to have participated in", Manger said. According to police, it was the last communication Najjar had with anyone, about a half-hour before he was killed.

They linked the rumor to a report filed by Canales-Yanez's then-girlfriend, who told police on December 4 that the passenger in a blue Honda Civic had grabbed her iPad and dragged her about 50 feet with the vehicle.

Authorities on Saturday executed a search warrant at Garcia-Gaona's residence, where they found a partial box of Glaser.40-caliber ammo.

Tonight they say Najjar was targeted for robbing one of the suspect's girlfriends.

The investigation is ongoing, and Manger said he hopes the release of the suspects' names spur others with knowledge of the case to come forward.

Confidential informants had helped ID the suspects and alleged the killings were revenge for the robbery, he added.

At what would have been their graduation ceremony, a moment of silence was held for the slain teenagers.
