Authorities captured the primary suspect later in the week.
Police arrested Marlo "Bow Wow" Jones, a contract employee for the anti-gang organization Unity One. LAPD officials said they are seeking other male and female suspects. Jones was arrested Friday at 8:50 a.m. in South Los Angeles and is being held in lieu of $1.1 million bail at the Parker Center Jail downtown. An official said Jones was terminated from his contract but that he could possibly be rehired if cleared in connection with the case. (Los Angeles Times)
Unity One was created by former gang member Darren "Bo" Taylor.
Unity One was established in 1992 after the civil uprising with Rodney King. Bo was on the frontline for change and for peace. Since 1992, he has created over five offspring organizations that work for peace through intervention/prevention techniques. (Unity One)
