Investigators arrested two suspects and are looking for a third in the fatal shooting of an innocent 7-year-old girl in Northeast Florida.

Last Saturday's shooting outside an IHOP in Jacksonville ended in the killing of Heydi Rivas Villanueva, struck and killed by a stray bullet in her family's car as she waited for her mom.

Investigators say two of the suspects in the shooting, Abrion Maurice Price and 17-year-old Trevonte Phoenix, set up a gun sale on social media and planned to rob their targets outside an IHOP restaurant.

Police said Price and Phoenix robbed the targets of a gun, cash, and a cellphone before running away.

Police said the targets, unbeknownst to Price and Phoenix, had a friend in a second car who opened fire on Price and Phoenix as they ran from the robbery scene. JSO identified the friend as Stanley Tyrone Harris III. Harris has a criminal past and faces a warrant for felon in possession of a gun. More charges could come later as investigators believe the shot that killed Heydi came from the direction of Harris.

The sheriff's office said investigators found 13 shell casings at the crime scene.

Detectives have located all the cars in the shooting and they're being processed for evidence and prints.

Price and Phoenix are facing felony murder warrants. Price is not yet in custody.

A reward for information in the case is up to $16,000, with $5,000 of that total coming in on Tuesday from the Florida Sheriff's Association.
