Four people have been arrested in a shooting at a San Pedro park that left two people dead and several people injured earlier this summer, a law enforcement source told KTLA Monday.
Tashman Williams, 31, of Compton and Carlyle Phillips, 29, of Cypress were killed after gunfire erupted at Peck Park on July 24.
Six other people were injured during the incident, which occurred when hundreds of people were attending a car show and a weekly softball game meant for peace at the park.
Los Angeles Police Department officials had previously said that the shooting began as an altercation between two people who decided to meet at the park to settle their dispute.
Four people were arrested and booked last week on suspicion of the murder in connection with the shooting, the LAPD source said:
- Raynard French, 56, was arrested in Carson
- Travion McCraw, 31, was arrested in Lake Elsinore
- Antoine Newsome, 41, was arrested in Gardena
- Kenyon Siler, 48, was arrested in Long Beach
The LAPD’s elite Robbery-Homicide division, gang and narcotics division, metropolitan division, south bureau homicide division, along with FBI SWAT members assisted in the arrests.
Authorities have not elaborated on the suspects’ roles in the shooting.
The case will be presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office on Monday.
