So-called copycat violence, looting and arson erupted last night in Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool, Salford, Nottingham and elsewhere.
Reports say the three were on the streets to protect their community from rioting groups.
The police are treating the deaths as murder. Officers arrested one man and recovered a vehicle that possibly may have been involved in the incident.
As in London, vigilante groups have taken over some areas in Birmingham.
A police spokesman said: “They were not in the way or blocking the road. The car swerved towards them. They went flying up in the air”.
