Just before 1:20 a.m. Pittsburgh Police Zone 1 officers spotted a stolen vehicle on S.Side Avenue at Sunset Avenue.
The vehicle had been reported stolen in an earlier armed carjacking in the 1700 block of Belleau Drive just after 5 p.m.
Officers followed it for a short time before the three male occupants bailed out of the vehicle on Reekes Way, a dead end street just off of Spring Garden.
One of the males was taken into custody immediately, while the two others ran into a wooded area.
Police caught up with the other two males on foot and they were also taken into custody. All three are juveniles.
The investigation is ongoing.
NB: This is a separate carjacking incident and different vehicle from the one that occurred in the 300 block of Suncrest Street in Zone 3.
