Arrest Made in San Leandro Triple Homicide

.

A person of interest in a shooting earlier this month that left  three dead and three others injured after a tattoo party held at a San  Leandro warehouse was arrested by police early this morning, police said.

    At 7 a.m., an Oakland police SWAT team assisted San Leandro police  in serving a search and arrest warrant in the 1900 block of 21st Avenue,  according to San Leandro police.     Police arrested Paul Arthur Stevenson III, 20, of Oakland, who was  taken into custody without incident.
    Stevenson was wanted in connection with the shooting that took  place early the morning of Oct. 2 after a tattoo warehouse party at 2661  Alvarado St. near Aladdin Avenue in San Leandro.
    After the party, two suspects shot at a green Ford Explorer  containing seven people, striking six, three of whom died from their  injuries. The other three victims have since been released from the hospital.
    The seventh victim ran from the car after the incident, but police  later located him.
    Killed in the shooting were 16-year-old Leneasha Northington,  19-year-old Shanice Kiel and 23-year-old Joshua Alford.
    San Leandro police estimated shortly after the shooting that about  200 people attended the party, most in their late teens or early 20s, and  that the party was heavily promoted on social media sites like Facebook.
    The party had ended by the time the shooting happened around 1:20  a.m., but there was still a large group of people in the parking lot, police  said.
    The City of San Leandro is offering a $10,000 reward for  information leading to the arrest of a second suspect, who has only been  described as a black male who wore dark clothing.
    No motive has been determined, San Leandro police said this  afternoon.
