September 1, 2009 |  9:21 pm

Los Angeles police said they have arrested two murder suspects who they believe started a South Los Angeles shooting rampage that began with the slaying of a 13-year-old boy.

LAPD Chief William J. Bratton formed a multi-agency task force shortly after the slaying of Daquan Allen on Aug. 16 prompted several more shootings, leaving two others dead and at least three others wounded.

Officials will provide details in a news conference at 10 a.m. Wednesday at the LAPD's 77th Street Division headquarters.
