Four men were in custody Monday in connection with a July shooting at a San Pedro park that left two men dead and six other people injured.

The crime occurred on July 24 at about 3:50 p.m. at Peck Park, 560 Western Ave., according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Paramedics transported three men and four women for hospital treatment, including Tashman Williams 31, and Carlyle Phillips, 29, who both died of their injuries, police said.

Another injured man was taken to a hospital in a private vehicle, police said. All six survivors were hospitalized in stable condition, police said.

On Sept. 8, four suspects were arrested by personnel from the LAPD’s Robbery-Homicide Division, Gang and Narcotics Division, Metropolitan Division, South Bureau Homicide Division, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Raynard French, 56, was arrested in Carson; Travion McCraw, 31, was arrested in Lake Elsinore; Antoine Newsome, 41, was arrested in Gardena; and Kenyon Siler, 48, was arrested in Long Beach.

All were booked on suspicion of murder, and all were being held without bail. The case was presented to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office for filing consideration on Monday, police said.

At the time of the shooting, hundreds of people were in the park, which was the site of a car show and a weekly softball game. A motive for the shooting was unclear.
