LOUISVILLE -- A 20-year-old Kentucky father who had watched the birth of his first children before being shot last week has been pronounced dead.

Tyrese Garvin was taken off of life support Friday. He was shot in a drive-by shooting, walking home from the hospital where his twins were born. He died in the same hospital.

Louisville Metro Police Lt. Emily McKinley said they arrested three teenage boys, ages 14 to 17. Their charges weren't immediately specified. McKinley said this crime is among a disturbing trend in the city. Young people are stealing cars and using them in drive-by shootings.
