HEMET - A 20-year-old probationer who allegedly gunned down a 23-year-old Hemet man during a confrontation outside a house was in custody on Friday, Nov. 16 on suspicion of murder.

Darrell Nadir Longshore of San Jacinto and his alleged accomplice, Ferron Patrick Berry, 20, of Hemet, were arrested after the attack Thursday on Ceddrick Newman in the 1500 block of Sunnybank Drive, near Ferngreen Drive.

Longshore was booked into the Smith Correctional Facility on suspicion of murder, attempted murder and probation violations, with bail set at $1 million.

Berry was booked into the same facility on suspicion of being an accessory after the fact. He's being held in lieu of $10,000 bail.

According to Hemet police Lt. Jeff Davis, about 4 p.m. Thursday, Longshore and the victim had an undisclosed conflict that culminated in gunfire. Newman was wounded in the upper body. Several other people were in the line of fire, but were not hit, the lieutenant said.

Newman was taken to a trauma center, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Davis said detectives quickly developed leads pointing to Longshore as the alleged gunman, and the probationer was arrested during the night.

Berry allegedly facilitated the suspect's getaway and was taken into custody around the same time.

A motive for the shooting was not disclosed.

According to court records, Longshore has prior convictions for possession of controlled substances while armed and being an unlicensed operator of a motor vehicle.

Records show Berry has a prior conviction for driving under the influence.
