FAIRFIELD (CBS13) – On Tuesday afternoon, authorities tracked down and arrested a suspect believed to be involved in a double homicide in Fairfield.
Police believe that four suspects were engaged in illicit activities in a vehicle on El Toro Court in the Parkway Gardens neighborhood of Fairfield on March 7, that later led to a gun battle which left two dead from gunshot wounds.
The deceased were identified as 24-year-old Vedell Jamar Chew and 18-year-old Bernard Francis Knight.
An arrest warrant for two counts of murder was issued for 18-year-old Marcel Rutherford-Chew, who was identified as an associate of the two victims.
Darren Trahan, 22, the fourth man in the vehicle at the time of the murders, was previously arrested as a co-conspirator but was later released due to lack of evidence.
U.S. Marshals assisted Fairfield police in tracking arresting Marcel at a residence in the Van Nuys community of Los Angeles.
Fairfield Police detectives took custody of Chew and transported him to Fairfield where he was booked at the Solano County Jail.
In addition, Marcel has two burglary warrants that were issued in Redwood City.
