Three teenagers were shot dead in an ambush following an argument which began in school and continued on Facebook.
Seven teenage boys packed into a Toyota Corolla and went looking for three brothers involved in the argument. The group drove up to a house in Philadelphia, but it’s believed a man in a grey hoodie came out of the house and approached them.
Concerned by this, the group drove to the back of the house but police said the same man came out of the door and fired 12 shots at point-blank range.
Three members of the group died. They were identified as Joshua Soto and Dante Lugo, both 14, and 16 year old Javier Orlandi. Another teenager was also wounded in the attack.
According to cops, the stepfather of the three brothers, 30 year old Axel Barreto, seen above, was arrested on Wednesday night. Captain James Clark said: ‘There very easily could have been seven dead teenagers in that car.’
The argument was believed to have started in school between two groups of teenagers from different neighborhoods.
