A second man has been arrested in a fatal shooting on April 17 at Marti Van Ravenswaay Park. A suspect arrested earlier has been released from jail, police said.

Vincent Releford, 30, of Fort Worth, was arrested April 25 on multiple outstanding warrants issued in Fort Worth and Forest Hill, according to police. While in jail, Releford was arrested on suspicion of murder in the death of Brince Shaw, 21.

Releford remained in the Arlington jail Friday with bail totaling more than $300,000.

Deaudrick Jewuane Clayton, 25, was arrested about 12 hours after the shooting on suspicion of murder and aggravated assault, police said. After more investigation, Clayton was released from jail, according to police. The case is still under investigation, and there may be other arrests, police said.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Clayton called Shaw’s girlfriend derogatory names, so Shaw and a friend arranged to meet Clayton and his friends to fight at the park on Bowman Springs Road.

The girlfriend later told police that when Shaw and his friend got to the park, they saw a dark-colored, four-door vehicle drive around the parking lot three times and then stop. Then they heard gunshots and saw flashes of light from the front passenger side of the vehicle where Clayton was sitting.

Shaw’s friend told police that he felt pain in his left shoulder and began running away, but when he realized that Shaw was not with him, he went back and found him lying on the ground, unable to speak. The wounded man called 911 on his cellphone.
