Police arrested the final suspect Friday in connection with a shooting that left three victims dead and three injured in San Leandro in October 2011.

Oakland resident, Thomas Walker Jr., 24, was arrested Friday in Hayward in connection with the 2011 homicides, San Leandro police said.

On Oct. 2, 2011, six victims were shot after a party in San Leandro. Three of the victims died in the shooting, police said. Detectives identified five suspects who were responsible for the homicides and four were arrested within months of the shooting, according to police.
