Ten minutes later, police were called to a vehicle set ablaze in an alley off Crown Street and West 21st Avenue. Officers responding to the fire were able to identify a suspect vehicle.

Then, at 10:45 a.m., about an hour after the shooting, police arrested three people following a vehicle crash on Highway 91 in Richmond.

Arson and other charges were filed against UN gang associates Balraj Basra and Iqbal Kang Tuesday. The same charges were also levied against DeAndre Baptiste.

On Friday, Basra, 22, Kang, 21, and Baptiste, 18, were jointly charged with first-degree murder with a firearm. They remain in custody.
