OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Three suspects are in custody in connection with the theft of an SUV and police confirm that the vehicle is the same one that surfaced Wednesday in the investigation of the death of Payton Benson.

Authorities say a stray bullet that killed a 5-year-old girl as she ate breakfast in her Omaha home may have come from as far as a block away.

Adonus R. Moses, 22, Vincent V. Hicks, 20 and Jaylen Montgomery, 18, were picked up for allegedly receiving stolen property. The property is that SUV.

While the suspects were being held only for their connection to the vehicle, the SUV surfaced Wednesday in the spotlight of the investigation of a deadly shooting.

Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer said at a news conference Wednesday night that Payton Benson did not appear to be the intended target of the bullet. He said it came from a shooting at an address that's a block from the girl's home. That shooting involved numerous gunshots from multiple weapons.
