Three in Lancaster held on $1-million bail in street-fight shooting

Three Lancaster men were being held on $1-million bail Saturday in a fatal shooting that occurred during a street fight.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies summoned to the altercation in the 43000 block of Gadsden Avenue on Friday afternoon found the victim, a 21-year-old man, lying in the street with gunshot wounds to his upper body, according to a department news release.

The victim, whose name was not released, was pronounced dead at a local hospital. “Investigators learned the victim and several suspects were involved in a fight on the street…when one of the suspects pulled out a gun and fatally shot the victim,” Deputy Guillermina Saldana stated.

The suspects, who were booked on suspicion of murder, are Terrell Henderson, 20; Joshua Rayon Lockett, 20; and Randy Sullivan, 34. They are due in court Monday. Sherrif’s homicide detectives are continuing their investigation and have not determined the relationship between the men and the victim. Anyone with information is asked to call the homicide bureau at (323) 890-5500.
