    Arlington police investigate a fatal shooting at Marti Van Ravenswaay Park early Friday, April 18, 2014.

    Arlington police have arrested and charged a second man in connection with the fatal shooting at a city park.

    According to investigators, 21-year-old Brince Shaw was shot and killed in Marti Van Ravenswaay Park around midnight April 18 following an argument with Deaudrick Jewuane Clayton.

    Arlington police said Tuesday that 20-year-old Vincent Eric Releford was arrested on outstanding warrants out of Fort Worth and Forest Hills on April 26. While in the custody of police, Releford was charged with murder related to Shaw's fatal shooting.

    In an previous report, police said the fight was arranged after Clayton exchanged verbal blows with Shaw's girlfriend. Clayton and his girlfriend, who is friends with Shaw's girlfriend, were having an argument at the time of the verbal sparring.

    With his girlfriend upset, Shaw got involved. After more than one attempt to meet in public and sort out their differences, Shaw and Clayton agreed to meet at the park near Lake Arlington.

    Soon after Shaw arrived at the park, and as he walked toward a group of people standing near a parked car, gunshots were heard and muzzle flashes were reported coming from the passenger side of a vehicle.

    Shaw and his friend, Timothy Pickens, were both injured and transported to the Medical Center of Arlington. Soon after arrival, Shaw was pronounced dead.

    Clayton was arrested the next day and charged with Shaw's murder.

    Arlington police have not outlined Releford's suspected role in the slaying, though both he and Clayton remain in custody.

    Clayton is being held on $300,000 bail while Releford is being held on $318,933 bail -- a combination for the murder charge and his outstanding warrants, police said.
