Gary Garcia : “LA Shooting Spree: Garcia and McNeely Arrested for 4 Cudahy, Huntington Park, Florence, Bell Killings”

Two Suspects Arrested in Connection with Southern California Shootings

LOS ANGELES — Authorities have announced the arrest of two suspects in connection with a series of shootings in Southern California that resulted in the deaths of four individuals, including a 14-year-old boy. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is currently investigating these incidents, which occurred late Sunday night and early Monday morning in southeast Los Angeles County.

The shootings took place in several cities, including Bell, Cudahy, Huntington Park, and the Florence-Firestone area of South L.A. Thankfully, law enforcement officials have recovered a red Honda Pilot SUV believed to be involved in the killings.

Thanks to the swift actions of investigators, the vehicle and its license plate number were identified soon after the homicides. This information was then entered into a law enforcement database, which ultimately led to a traffic stop in San Bernardino County. As a result, one of the suspects was taken into custody by sheriff’s deputies.

The second suspect was apprehended through other investigative techniques. A SWAT team executed a search warrant at a undisclosed location, resulting in the arrest. The suspects have been identified as Gary Garcia, 42, and Wayne McNeely Timberland, 20. Both individuals are believed to be gang members.

While two suspects are now in custody, authorities have reason to believe that a third suspect may still be at large. The investigation is ongoing as detectives work tirelessly to gather more information.

“It appears that this was a random murder spree,” stated L.A. County Sheriff’s Capt. Andrew Meyer during a press conference on Tuesday.

One of the victims, 14-year-old Javier Pedraza Jr., tragically lost his life during one of the shootings in Cudahy. Another boy was also injured and is currently in stable condition at a local hospital. A GoFundMe page has been set up in Javier’s honor to assist with funeral expenses.

The identities of the other two deceased victims have not been released by the medical examiner’s office, pending notification of their families. The Los Angeles County sheriff’s Homicide Bureau is urging anyone with information about the killings to come forward and contact them at (323) 890-5500.

The community is coming together to mourn the loss of these innocent lives. A vigil for Kevin Parada, one of the victims, is scheduled to take place on Tuesday evening in Bell. This tragedy serves as a stark reminder of the importance of community safety and the need for continued efforts to prevent such senseless acts of violence.
