Police this week arrested a third man linked to a fatal shooting on April 17 at Marti Van Ravenswaay Park.

Daniel Overstreet was arrested in connection with the drive-by shooting of Brince Shaw, 21. Overstreet was in the Arlington city jail Friday, facing murder and aggravated assault charges with bonds totaling $515,000.

Another man arrested in the case, Vincent Releford, 30, of Fort Worth was charged with suspicion of murder while in jail. He had been arrested April 25 on multiple outstanding warrants in Fort Worth and Forest Hill.

He was in the Tarrant County jail on Friday on murder and other charges with bonds totaling more than $318,000, the jail log showed.

Another man, Deaudrick Jewuane Clayton, 25, was arrested about 12 hours after the shooting on suspicion of murder and aggravated assault, police said. After further investigation, Clayton was released, according to police.

Interviews with witnesses led police to Overstreet. But police said Clayton could still face charges.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, someone 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.

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.
