A North Carolina teenager was found shot to death inside her car last weekend, and four teenagers have been charged in connection with the incident, police said.
Police found Veronica Baker, 17, shot to death in her car last Saturday in the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant in Garner, just south of Raleigh, news outlets reported.
Raleigh police said Keyshara Michelle Deans, 19; Nezyiha Zamir Collins, 19; and Tyreek Qumay Rogers, 18, were arrested late Tuesday and charged with felony accessory after the fact to murder. A 17-year-old also was arrested and accused of killing Baker, police said.
The four are being held in the Wake County jail. Deans and Collins are being held under a $500,000 bond, while Deans is being held on bond of more than $1 million. Bond for the 17-year-old couldn’t be confirmed and it’s not known if any of the four have attorneys.
