Investigators say a suspect linked to the shooting, Richard Kuykendall, was in an alley near San Pedro when a car pulled up and someone inside opened fire on him. That’s when they say he got inside the car, then emerged seconds later and threw a gun in a dumpster, before driving the car with the three men inside to the hospital.
He is charged with being a felon with a gun. Investigators say Kuykendall has ties to the Aryan Brotherhood.
