    Hamyd Mourad, the 18-year-old alleged getaway driver in the Charlie Hebdo attack, which killed 12 in Paris, walked into a police station 145 miles northeast of the city, in Charleville-Mézières, on Wednesday night and gave himself up, police said. The other suspects have been identified as brothers Said Kouachi, 34, and Cherif Kouachi, 32, and are still at large. They are considered armed and dangerous. The two brothers were previously known to French intelligence services, The New York Times reports. Cherif Kouachi was first arrested in 2005 in connection with a radical preacher calling for jihad in Iraq and justifying suicide bombings. He was convicted on terrorism charges in France in 2008 and sentenced to 18 months in prison.
