The three are charged in the deaths of 17-year-old Shadi Adi Najjar and 18-year-old Artem Ziberov, Montgomery County Police Chief J. Thomas Manger said at a news conference late Saturday.

Investigators said they think Najjar and Ziberov were killed in retaliation for a "drug-related robbery" that Najjar committed months ago. He added that he remains "unsure right now if there was a motive to kill Ziberov as well, or if he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time".

The murders happened the night before their high school graduation, Shadi Najjar and best friend Artem Ziberov, were lured to the Montgomery Village neighborhood and murdered by multiple shooters.

"I can tell you one of the victims was shot ten times".

Both of the murdered teens were reportedly well-liked, honor roll students.

The double-homicide probe also revealed that Najjar's last communication before his death had been a 10:13 p.m. text message claiming he planned to sell a graduation ticket to Garcia, who later told police he was a Northwest High School student but claimed not to know Najjar or Ziberov. Authorities tied that rumor to a December 14 police report in which Canales-Yanez's then-girlfriend - believed to now be his wife - alleged someone in a blue Honda Civic had grabbed her iPad and dragged her about 50 feet with the vehicle.

On Saturday, Manger said, authorities executed a search warrant at Garcia-Gaona's house, where they found a box of Blazer 40 caliber ammunition. He also said the suspects took Najjar's cellphone. According to authorities, detectives have made arrests in this case but this is by no means should be interpreted that the investigation has concluded. Stay with WTOP as we get more details.

'When I spoke to Artem's mother this morning, while extremely upset, her words to me were 'I hope everyone has a great celebration today, ' D'Andrea said, encouraging the students as they struggled to compose themselves.
