SAN JOSE (CBS SF) – Three 16-year-olds – two girls and one boy – have been arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with an April 5 hit-and-run collision in San Jose, according to police.

The three suspects were taken into custody last week nearly two weeks after the victim, 17-year-old Patrick Montgomery, was found seriously injured, San Jose police Sgt. Enrique Garcia said. Montgomery was taken to a hospital where he died the next day.
