PINELLAS COUNTY – One teen in Florida is dead, and two are critically injured after stealing a Maserati and crashing it moments later.

On Sunday, at approximately 3:20 a.m., deputies responded to the area of 2998 58th Avenue North in unincorporated St. Petersburg in reference to a vehicle burglary in progress.

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office K9 Unit, Flight Unit, and patrol deputies responded to the area to locate the suspect. Deputies took one subject into custody.

According to deputies, as the flight unit was still in the area, three more unrelated suspects were seen by the helicopter attempting to break into vehicles.

The Flight Unit maintained a visual on the suspects and witnessed them approach a 2016 Silver Maserati that was parked in a driveway near 62nd Avenue North and 28th Street North.

Deputies say one of the suspects, later identified as 15-year-old Keondrick Lang, used his t-shirt to open the vehicle door of the Maserati, which was unlocked and the keys were inside.

The other two suspects, later identified as 16-year-old Malachi Daniels and 15-year-old Mario Bonilla, also got into the vehicle and headed eastbound on 62nd Street North with no headlights on.
