LANCASTER – Three people have been arrested in connection with Thursday’s daylight shooting in Lancaster that left one man dead, authorities said.
Lancaster residents Terrell Henderson, 20, Joshua Lockett, 20, and Randy Sullivan, 34, were arrested around 4:10 p.m. Thursday.
All three suspects were booked for murder early Friday morning at the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station, according to the LASD Inmate System.
As of 10 p.m. Friday, officials were not naming the murder victim because his next of kin had not been notified, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office.
Sheriff’s officials said the victim was a 21-year-old Black male.
According to the latest press report issued by the Sheriff’s Department Friday night:
At approximately 1:09 p.m. Thursday [Nov. 29], Lancaster Station deputies responded to the 43000 block of Gadsden Avenue, regarding an assault with a deadly weapon call.
When officers arrived they saw a 21-year-old man lying on the street suffering from several gunshot wounds to the upper torso. The victim was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Investigators learned that the victim and several suspects were involved in a fight on the street in front of the location when one of the suspects pulled out a gun and fatally shot the victim.
The relationship between the victim and the suspects is unknown.
There is no further information available at this time.
Investigators are not releasing the booking photos of the suspects, due to the ongoing investigation. They’re each being held on $1 million bail and are due in court on Monday.
