Three young men have been arrested on suspicion of homicide for what police say was a gang-related killing.

Sacramento police arrested Marcus Scott (left), 20, Ronald D. Grant (bottom left), 19, and Jumal Gray (bottom right), 20, on suspicion of homicide in the death of Perell Marquise Waters, a 19-year-old father-to-be who was gunned down on Dec. 15.

All of the suspects are Sacramento residents.

Shortly before 10 p.m. that night, Waters and a friend were leaving the parking lot of the Woodbridge apartment complex in the 1900 block of San Juan Road in the victim's car when three men approached on foot and fired numerous gunshots.

Waters was taken to an area hospital, where he died. His friend escaped without injury.

Police said the shooting was part of an ongoing gang dispute.

Scott was arrested after the Career Criminal Apprehension Team stopped him in a vehicle near San Juan Avenue and Truxel Road.

Grant was already in custody and Gray was arrested at police headquarters.
