The TV station reports that a second person is being questioned in the robberies. High school and middle school students in Oak Cliff have been robbed at gunpoint by multiple men in a car at least six times since Feb. 15.

People in a car trying to “lure” Sunset High School students Wednesday fired a shot into the air as the students walked away. And a Cockrell Hill woman was robbed of her cellphone and backpack by men in a car who held her at gunpoint Monday.

During a DPD media conference (see livestream below), police said a 17-year-old also was arrested and is in jail. They are investigating other suspects as well.  Police said both suspects admitted to crimes.
