A juvenile passenger has died after a car in which robbery suspects were being chased by Alpharetta police overturned.

Alpharetta police spokesman George Gordon says an undercover Roswell detective spottted the suspects' car just before 10:30 p.m. Wednesday and began following it.

He says the suspects saw the detective following them and fled. He says Alpharetta police continued the pursuit with marked police cars.

Gordon says the driver of the fleeing car lost control and overturned. A boy in the back seat was killed in the crash.

The driver and a second passenger were injured and were taken into custody.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner's office has not identified the boy.
