Arkansas Triple-Homicide Suspect Arrested in San Diego: Police

The suspect was wanted in connection with a Nov. 16, 2018, shooting in Little Rock, Arkansas, that left three young victims dead and a fourth wounded

A man suspected in a triple-homicide case out of Little Rock, Arkansas, was arrested Wednesday night in San Diego, police confirmed.

The San Diego Police Department (SDPD) said Joshua Milik Williams, 22, was arrested just before 7:45 p.m. at the Harborside Trolley Station on S. 28th Street. Law enforcement officials from the Joint Agency Task Force aided in the arrest.

The SDPD said officers were conducting enforcement on the trolley when they came across Williams on board the public transit train.

He was busted for a fare violation and when officers checked his record, they learned he had an active felony warrant out of Little Rock, Arkansas, for a triple-homicide that happened on Nov. 16, 2018.

Williams was booked into San Diego Central Jail and is scheduled to appear in court Friday. He will soon be extradited to Arkansas to face charges.

According to the Little Rock Police Department (LRPD), Williams is linked to a shooting that left three young victims dead and another wounded.

A report from the LRPD identified the victims as Carrington Williams and Latija Luckey, both 19, and Kennelle Anderson, 20. A fourth victim who is 17 years old suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his legs, but survived. His name was not released by police.

The LRPD said the shooting happened on Nov. 16, 2018, at 4405 West 14th St. in Little Rock. Officers responded to reports of gunfire in the area and, when they got to the scene, discovered a black Jeep Renegade rolled over on its side in a ditch.

When officers looked inside the wreckage, they discovered Carrington Williams, Luckey and Anderson inside, all suffering from gunshot wounds. Anderson was declared dead at the scene; Carrington Williams and Luckey were both taken to a local hospital where they soon died.

Arkansas-based NBC affiliate KARK spoke with Luckey's father, Larry Luckey Jr., Monday about the case. He fought back tears as he talked about the pain of having his young daughter suddenly ripped from his family.

"I want him to go to jail. We need justice right now, for my daughter. My daughter was murdered!" Larry Lucky Jr. told the NBC affiliate. "My daughter was murdered; three people [are] dead."

The SDPD said Williams had been living as a transient in the San Diego area but did not offer further details.

The LRPD is leading the investigation into the triple-homicide. At this point, the motive for the slayings is unknown.
