Police say the carjacking victim found the stolen Dodge Journey later in the morning and began following it in another vehicle. At that time, she told police the suspects began firing shots at her so she then returned fire.
The stolen SUV crashed head-on into a car on King’s Lane, prompting the teens to flee the scene. No one was hurt in the crash and no one was hit by gunfire.
Once officers responded, they were able to find the 14 and 15-year-old brothers hiding in the woods nearby. They were then positively identified as the carjackers.
Police also recovered three additional stolen vehicles in the area — a Dodge Charger, a Mercedes Benz and a dirt bike.
The brothers are now being charged with aggravated robbery in juvenile court.
