A manhunt for the killers of a Maryland police officer — who had planned to celebrate her birthday and wedding anniversary this weekend — ended Tuesday with the arrests of three teenagers.
The three suspects — who are 15, 16 and 17 and have not been identified — were charged as adults Wednesday morning with murder and burglary, according to WBAL-TV in Baltimore.
Their arrests come after Dawnta Harris, 16, was busted for his alleged role in the death of Baltimore County Police Officer Amy Caprio, 29.
Caprio on Monday confronted burglary suspects who attempted to flee in a vehicle. She ordered Harris, the driver of the Jeep, to step out of the car, police reported. Harris then allegedly charged at her and Caprio fired her weapon at the Jeep. After Harris allegedly mowed her down, he abandoned the vehicle nearby. It was found with a bullet hole in the front windshield.
Caprio later died
