MIAMI (CBSMIAMI) — Authorities have recovered a car involved in the death of a 6-year old child.

Miami-Dade Police said they recovered the 1999 Black Lexus in Opa- Locka on Wednesday.  It has since been taken to a secure location.

The vehicle is part of an ongoing investigation into the death of King Carter – a child who was going out to get candy when he was caught in crossfire and shot dead.

Three teens have been arrested in connection to the case.

Tamar Teems, 16, is charged with attempted murder and second degree murder. At last check, he was to remain in custody while prosecutors decided whether to charge him as an adult.

Irwen Pressley, 17, and Leonard Adams, 18, were also arrested. They are facing charges of attempted first degree murder and second degree murder.

Teems reportedly confessed to being in the car on February 20th when Pressley and Adams went to an apartment complex at 1205 NW 103rd Lane to settle an online feud with a person nicknamed “Ju Ju.” 

After spotting their intended target in a stairwell, both Pressley and Adams reportedly got out of the car and began shooting at him.

“Ju Ju” fired back. Both Adams and Pressley then got back in their car and sped off.

Police say they are still looking “Ju Ju.”

Anyone with information is urged to call Miami-Dade Crimestoppers at (305) 471- TIPS.
