Kissimmee, Florida (AP) - Three young men were arrested in connection with a carjacking in which two people were shot to death. The killings occurred early on Sunday after a group of men in a pick-up truck rammed a vehicle carrying four friends. They abducted the three men and a woman, drove them to a pasture, forced the men to strip naked and then shot each one, authorities said. The woman was not harmed and one of the men survived. Sheriffs' spokesmen said Alf Catholic, 21, was arrested in Kissimmee on Tuesday and charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one of attempted murder. Leondre Lamont Henderson, 17, and Jermaine Foster, 19, were both arrested on Tuesday and would face the same charges. The three were said to have made confessions.
