A juvenile has been taken into custody after a carjacking at a Georgetown gas station, and police said that they are looking for two others involved in the crime.

About 1:10 a.m. Friday, a Virginia woman was at the Exxon station in the 3600 block of M Street NW when she was approached by a male who brandished a black handgun and said "give me everything you got." The victim's property and keys were taken, and the culprit who approached the woman and two other males got into the woman's 2007 Mercedes, D.C. police spokeswoman Saray Leon said.

D.C. police pursued the car until it rolled over and came to a stop on the Clara Barton Parkway about one mile into Maryland at about 1:45 a.m. The carjackers fled on foot, and about an hour after the crash, one of them was caught in a neighborhood near the parkway and taken into custody by Montgomery County police, officials said.

Montgomery County police spokesman Capt. Jim Daly said that he did not have information about charges against the male juvenile who was apprehended.
