Lancashire Police said a 24 year old man and 19 year old man, along with a 17 year old girl, are all being held after being arrested overnight on Thursday.
Jonjo was found on St Stephen’s Road in Deepdale on Saturday night.
A post mortem determined he had died from a stab wound to the neck.
Three of the men arrested earlier in the week have been bailed pending further enquiries.
They are two 21 year old men and a 20 year old man, all from Preston.
Three Preston men appeared in court on Thursday charged with Jonjo’s murder and will appear at Preston Crown Court on Monday.
Police continue their appeal to trace a vehicle seen in the area which they believe is linked to the killing.
Anyone with information is asked to call the police on 101.
