Woman killed in Newark carjacking

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - 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, just hours after the carjacking occurred. But their names and the charges they face were not released, and authorities didn't say if any of them were involved in the carjacking.

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

Forty-year-old Newark resident Sharice Henry was killed in the carjacking that occurred around 11 p.m. Thursday. Authorities say Henry's young nephew was in the car with her but apparently wasn't injured.
