2 arrested in LA party shooting that left 3 dead, 12 wounded
LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles police have arrested two suspects in the shooting that left three people dead and 12 wounded at a restaurant operating out of a converted home.
Police said 33-year-old Mowayne McKay and 25-year-old Diego Reid, both of whom are Jamaican nationals, were taken into custody early Sunday. They are expected to be booked on murder charges.
Investigators believe a dispute between a man and at least two other man led to the shooting early Saturday at a birthday celebration attended by around 50 people in LA’s Jamaican community.
Police said one man was shot, then several other shots were fired indiscriminately in the crowd. They said other party-goers may have returned fire in the direction of the suspects.
One of the dead was the man who got into an argument with the suspects. Of the injured, police said one man remains hospitalized in extremely critical condition.
