Shooting Suspect Redlands police on Thursday afternoon released a sketch of a man sought in a shooting that left two teenagers dead and two others wounded.

The gunman is described as Latino, 17 to 20 years old and 150 to 170 pounds. He is between 5-feet-6 and 5-feet-10 with a thin build. He was wearing a black baseball cap, a black, hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans, the Redlands Police Department said.

The two slain youths have been identified as Quinn McCaleb, 17, of Redlands, who died at the scene, and Andrew Jackson, 16, who was pronounced dead in the emergency room of Loma Linda University Medical Center.

The two other teenagers were seriously injured but are expected to survive, said Carl Baker, spokesman for the city of Redlands.

He told The Times that investigators had not determined a motive for the shootings, which occurred in a playground area between apartment buildings on Oxford Drive.

Anyone with information is asked to call Sgt. Mark Hardy at (909) 798-7545.
