Police arrest suspected Mountain View Park shooter

SAN DIEGO-- Police arrested 29-year-old Shannon Bryant Saturday in connection with a shooting in the Mountain View neighborhood that fatally wounded two men.

On May 6 around 1:30 p.m., San Diego police were called to Mountain View Park after hearing a report of shots fired in the area.

Police say they found two men suffering from gunshot wounds lying on the ground in the 500 block of 40th Street. Both victims were taken to Scripps Mercy Hospital.

The two men were later identified as 33-year-old Tony Jackson and 37-year-old Robert Brown -- both were pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police said the victims were standing in front of a recreation center when a black male in dark clothes started shooting.

Homicide detectives identified Bryant as a suspect in their investigation. Now he is being held without bail on suspicion of first-degree murder.  He will be arraigned next week.
