Authorities accuse four teenagers of killing a Raleigh taxi driver during an attempted robbery.
Police say 59-year-old Michael Palmer was found shot to death
outside his cab late Monday in an apartment parking lot. The Associated Press reports Saturday that three of the suspects were already in jail when police charged them with murder. They are 19-year-old Eugene Dumas III, 17-year-old Xavia Barnes, and 19-year-old Alexander Gonzales.
Raleigh police say the three were arrested Thursday on unrelated
burglary charges. Nineteen-year-old Jayshon Norment was arrested Friday night. All four are on probation for previous convictions. The four are scheduled to appear before a judge on Monday.
Palmer is the second Raleigh cab driver killed this year.
