Bakersfield police release fliers in push to solve 2 child homicides
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) —
The Bakersfield Police Department released fliers Thursday in a push to solve a pair of child homicides.
The fliers can be seen below.
Last winter, 5-year-old Kason Guyton was killed in a drive-by shooting at California Avenue and S Street. His 7-year-old brother, B.J., was also shot but survived. They were riding in a car with their mother's boyfriend at the time.
Police earlier this week said they have identified a suspect vehicle but didn't provide any details.
A week ago, someone busted into an apartment on Pershing Street and opened fire. Major Sutton, 3, was killed, and his mother and 5-year-old brother were wounded.
Anyone with information on Kason's murder is asked to call Detective Gavin at (661) 326-3557.
Anyone with information on Major's murder is asked to call Detective Paglia at 326-3556.
