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.
