Three teenagers in Georgia was arrested in connection with the shooting that killed two teenagers outside a birthday party last month, authorities said Wednesday.
Lamar Coleman, 18, and two 17-year-old twin brothers were taken into custody Tuesday, Douglas County Sheriff Aaron Hanson said in a press conference.
The sheriff’s office released a video of Hanson as the suspects walked into the sheriff’s office on Tuesday.
Hanson said the shooting appears to be gang-related and that the victims killed and injured were innocent bystanders and not the intended targets.

Seven other youths were injured. The ages of the victims ranged from 14 to 19, the sheriff’s office previously said.
