    After a wild scene in Brookline, Massachusetts, ended Wednesday with three men shot and stabbed at two different locations and two men on the run, police located the stolen getaway car and arrested two of the three men being treated at the hospital.

    Antonio Brown Jr., 27, of Lincoln Way in Cambridge, and Khari A. Wilcox, 18, of Abbot St., in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood, are charged with armed home invasion, armed assault in a dwelling, armed assault with intent to rob/murder and unlawful possession of a firearm.

    Both suspects were arrested at the hospital, where they were taken after Wednesday's incident. They are both in stable condition. One of them suffered stab wounds and the other stab and gunshot wounds.

    Wilcox was allowed to hide his face during the arraignment as prosecutors alleged he, Brown and at least one other man targeted a victim living on St. Paul Street, who officials say was shot multiple times in the leg.

    That victim remains hospitalized in stable condition.

    "We know that there are at least two other individuals that have something to do with this, that we are going to continue to pursue and talk to," said Brookline Police Chief Daniel O'Leary.

    In addition to that scene, there was a second crime scene at 75 Harvard St.

    Police searched Wednesday for a white Ford Focus that was rented out of New Jersey with New York plates. Brookline Police announced after 8 p.m. the vehicle had been found, unoccupied, in Boston.

    Three schools in the area were also placed into lockdown during the incident.

    O'Leary says tools and training used by the department since after the 2013 marathon bombings were put to use Wednesday.

    "One of our officers applied a tourniquet to the subject at 198 St. Paul Street and did a really good job to probably save his life," he said.
