Police make arrest in triple shooting

The Memphis Police Department has made an arrest in a triple shooting that left two teens dead Monday.

Memphis Police arrested 17-year-old Ceasar Johnson III.  Johnson is charged with two counts of first degree murder. 

The murder charges come after a triple shooting Monday on Mendenhall.  Three young men were while sitting in their car.  Cedric Stanley died on the scene and Mark Collins later died at the Med.  A third young person, Edward Stanley, remains in the hospital in critical condition. Police say the motive for the shooting appears to be an argument between the men.

Police say more arrests are expected in the case.
