A 12-year-old boy driving a stolen car from Florida and his three teenage passengers were detained — including on murder charges — after they got into a high-speed chase with police in Georgia, authorities said.
On Sept. 10, an officer clocked a black Honda Accord speeding down the interstate at 96 m.p.h. When the officer attempted to pull the car over, the driver raced up to around 120 m.p.h. and law enforcement deployed spike sticks to disable it, the Kingsland Police Department said.
According to authorities, the car was reported stolen in Jackson and police arrested the 12-year-old boy of Duval County, Florida, who was behind the wheel on charges of theft by bringing stolen property into the state, speeding, reckless driving, fleeing and attempting to elude, and fugitive from justice.
Three passengers in the car, two males, ages 14 and 15, and a 15-year-old female, all from Duval County, were also detained and each face charges of theft by receiving stolen property, and fugitive from justice.
Around 8 p.m. Sept. 6, WFOX-TV reported, seven boys and one girl, all juveniles, broke into a Jacksonville home. A 28-year-old man was fatally shot during the incident, according to family, who said the group stole Air Jordan sneakers and food.
