NEWARK, N.J. — Authorities have arrested two men and a 15-year-old boy found riding in a car that was stolen from a woman who was shot and killed during a Thanksgiving Day carjacking.

Essex County prosecutors say the three were arrested Friday morning, hours after the carjacking. Their names and charges weren’t released, and authorities didn’t say if they were involved in the carjacking.

Authorities say police spotted the car and saw four people get out. They captured three of them after a foot chase, but the fourth person got away.

Forty-year-old Newark resident Shuri Henry was killed in the carjacking outside her home around 11 p.m. Thursday. Authorities say Henry’s young nephew was in the car with her but apparently wasn’t injured.

NJ.com says Henry was a community organizer, and the daughter of late community organizer Cheryl Cottle-Henry.
