Fort Worth police say a high school student who was found shot to death had been robbing a house with two men when she was fatally wounded in an exchange of gunfire. Two other suspects were arrested.

Police revealed Saturday that 17-year-old Claudia Hidic of Fort Worth had been a suspect in the robbery, along with Curtis Fortenberry and Terrance Crumley, who are 21.

Police said in a news release that the three went to the house June 28 planning to rob the occupants. During the robbery gunshots were exchanged and Hidic was shot in the head. Her body was found near the back door of a home.

Police said Crumley turned himself in Saturday. Fortenberry was already in custody on unrelated charges. They are charged with felony murder.
