CHICAGO (AP) - Three more teenagers have been charged in the shooting death of another teen during what the victim’s aunt says was an attempt to steal his jacket.

In a news release on Monday, the Chicago Police Department says that two 17-year-old males and a 16-year-old male have been arrested and charged with first-degree murder. Another 17-year-old male was previously arrested and charged with murder.

Demario Bailey was killed Saturday in the Englewood neighborhood on the city’s South Side, three days before his 16th birthday.

The victim’s aunt, Michelle Fitzpatrick, says her nephew and his twin brother, Demacio Bailey, were walking to Demacio’s basketball practice when would-be robbers demanded the victim’s jacket. Fitzpatrick says Demario Bailey was shot in the chest when he wouldn’t comply, and died a short time later.
