Pasadena police Thursday released a composite drawing of one of four men sought in connection with an apparent gang-related double homicide in January.

The victims, both 24-year-old Pasadena residents, were gunned down about 11:50 p.m. Jan. 6 in the 100 block of West Claremont Street. Antione Sutphen died at the scene and Ormoni Duncan died at a hospital.

“Although the motive remains unconfirmed, all information and investigative leads suggests a feud between a local Pasadena gang and a gang from the Duarte area which erupted a few months prior to the murders,” according to a Pasadena police statement.

Since police made a public appeal Monday for help in solving the crime, “witnesses have come forward and provided further information, resulting in a composite sketch of one suspect,” Pasadena police Lt. Tracey Ibarra said.

Police described the suspects as black men in their 20s ranging in height from 5-feet-9 to 6-feet-2 inches tall and weighing between 180 and 250 pounds.

Anyone with information on the crime was urged to call police at (626) 744-4241, or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
