Court documents identify a different scene near San Pedro and Cutler saying shots came from a car, Kuykendall was trying to get into. Surveillance showed him walking to a dumpster where a gun was later found. Then the bodies were later found at Kaseman. He was arrested Friday night.

Right now, he’s only charged for being a felon with a gun. Kuykendall has not yet been charged with murder. Kuykendall and all three victims have apparent ties to the Aryan Brotherhood prison gang. A federal detention hearing is set for Wednesday.
