Suspect Charged in Deadly Drive-By Shooting at La Jolla House Party

Malik Campbell, 20, is the second suspect arrested in connection with the deadly June 23 shooting of Nina Silver, also 20

Nearly three months after a young woman died after being gunned down near a house party in La Jolla, San Diego police have arrested a second suspect in the case.

Malik Campbell, 20, was taken into custody on Sept. 11 and charged with first-degree murder in the shooting of Nina Silver, 20. The San Diego Police Department confirmed Campbell's arrest Friday; he's the second suspect in this case.

Silver died after a car opened fire on her and three others as they stood in an alley off Cuvier Street near Pearl Street on June 23. The gunfire was reported at 12:40 a.m. as a car passed the group.

SDPD Lt. Matt Dobbs said Campbell is being charged in the death of Silver, as well as the assault of the three others in the drive-by shooting.

He has pleaded not guilty to all charges and is currently being held at San Diego Central Jail. Campbell's court date is set for Oct. 8.

Campbell's arrest comes after police arrested and charged the first suspect in this case, Odyssey Sellers Carrillo, 18, in July.

Carillo was charged with six felonies, including murder, three counts of assault with a semi-automatic firearm, unlawful possession of a firearm, and evading an officer with reckless driving. According to court documents, Carrillo was convicted of robbery as a 15-year-old.

The case is being handled by the San Diego County District Attorney's Office. No other details have been released. 

A woman was killed and three people were wounded in a drive-by shooting at a La Jolla house party. NBC 7's Danica McAdam has the story.
