Several individuals involved in the beating and shooting have not been identified, officials said.

CLEVELAND, OHIO.- The entire incident happened over the course of five minutes, O’Malley said. The juveniles got into the stolen cars and drove away.

However, some of the group were arrested within two hours thanks to a 911 call, officials said. Police said they found the teens inside a house they had broken into and took them into custody.

Of the 12 arrested, all were between 12 and 16 years old, Cleveland Police Chief Wayne Drummond said.

Despite their ages, city officials promised to pursue serious charges.

“What we’re seeing here is … animalistic behavior,” Drummond said.

All of the juveniles arrested have been charged with receiving stolen property, officials said. Seven are facing charges of felonious assault and aggravated riot, and others have also been charged with a slew of firearms offenses.

One of the dozen arrested was also wanted on a murder charge, officials said.

Strong actions must be taken to combat the “senseless violence that is gripping not just Cleveland, but many communities within our county,” O’Malley said.
