PHILADELPHIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Philadelphia police say they are questioning two men concerning a carjacking and crash that left three children dead last week.

The news comes as family beg the suspects to turn themselves in.

"Taking innocent people's lives, that's my son, you took him away from me. Whoever did it, y'all need to turn yourself in."

Monday morning there's a memorial at the crash site where the kids were hit.

The three siblings, ages 7, 10 and 15, were struck down as they sold fruit for a church fundraiser.

Their 34-year-old mother remains hospitalized along with two other women, including the carjacking victim.

Dozens gathered Sunday night for a vigil just hours before police announced they had two people of interest in custody.
