    Arlington police have made a third arrest in connection to the April 17 shooting at Ravenswaay Park that left one man dead and another injured.

    Daniel Overstreet, 29, was booked into the Arlington Jail Sunday on a murder charge. Investigators believe he was the gunman who shot and killed Brince Shaw at the park.

    According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Shaw and another man, Deaudrick Clayton, got into an argument earlier that day and agreed to meet at the park to fight each other.

    When Shaw and his friend Timothy Pickens arrived, a car began circling them and stopped.  The person sitting in the front passnger seat then opened fire on them.

    Shaw was pronounced dead at the hospital; Pickens survived.

    Police initially arrested Clayton on murder charges but say new information from witnesses and other people with knowledge of the shooting has now led them to Overstreet.  Clayton has been reelased from custody, though he could still face charges pending the outcome of the investigation.

    Overstreet’s bond has been set at $500,000. The alleged driver of the car, Vincent Releford, was also arrested and remains in custody.
