DAYTON, Ohio — Four juveniles face charges in the fatal shooting of a rideshare driver and the armed robbery of another whose vehicle was stolen.

Authorities say the teens, all between 15 and 16, were taken into custody early Wednesday after a short standoff at a Dayton home.

Each youth was charged as a juvenile with aggravated robbery and aggravated murder, but authorities said their cases could soon be moved to adult court.

The investigation began when a rideshare driver called police to report she had been robbed at gunpoint by some teenagers.

Around that time, officers responded to a fatal shooting call involving another rideshare driver found dead in his vehicle, which had crashed into another vehicle after the driver was shot.
