CHULA VISTA (CNS) - Two Navy sailors and a third man were arrested Friday in connection with an early morning shooting that left a Marine wounded near a Chula Vista restaurant last month, police said.
Petty Officer 2nd Class Jarrel Daniels, 26, Petty Officer 3rd Class Michael Williams, 25, and 27-year-old DeMario Zachery were arrested as suspects in the shooting near the Denny's restaurant in the 600 block of E Street on May 15, said Chula Vista police Lt. Lon Turner. The victim's name has not been released.
A fight between patrons at the restaurant led to the subsequent shooting, which left the Marine with a gunshot wound to the leg, Turner said.
Witnesses told investigators they believed active-duty military personnel were involved.
Chula Vista police, along with Naval Criminal Investigative Services, identified the three suspects.
Daniels and Zachery were arrested early Friday morning at the residence they share in the 5100 block of Sandbar Cove Way in San Diego, Turner said, adding that a search of the home turned up a handgun and clothing possibly worn during the shooting.
Two unidentified men and two unidentified women at the residence during the search were detained but later released, Turner said.
As Daniels and Zachery were being arrested in San Diego, Williams was taken into custody aboard a U.S. Navy vessel in Homer, Ala., Turner said.
All three suspects face charges of conspiracy, assault with a deadly weapon and shooting from a moving vehicle, Turner said. What triggered their alleged dispute with the Marine was not immediately reported.
