La Jolla Light Crime and Public-Safety News Sept. 19: Second suspect charged in June post-party shooting


Second suspect charged in June post-party shooting in La Jolla

A second man has been arrested and was charged Friday, Sept. 13 in the June drive-by shooting that left a young woman dead and three males wounded at a La Jolla house party, June 23. Malik Joshua Campbell, 20, pleaded not guilty to a murder charge and three felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

San Diego Superior Court Judge Jay Bloom ordered Campbell held in jail in lieu of $5 million bail, at the request of a prosecutor. Campbell was arrested by San Diego police, but investigators could not disclose to La Jolla Light how he was identified, located or apprehended.

Nina Silver, 20, a 2017 graduate of Poway High School, was killed and three young men were wounded when someone opened fire on them from a passing light-colored sedan, while they were in an alley off Cuvier Street near Pearl Street about 12:40 a.m. June 23. Nine rounds were fired at the victims, authorities said.

Silver and a 23-year-old man were found in the alley, while two 19-year-old men were taken to hospitals before police got to the scene.

Police arrested a first suspect in the case, Odyssey Sellers Carrillo, 18, on July 17 after a police pursuit. He, too, is charged with murder and three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, as well as illegally possessing a firearm and evading officers. (His name has been reported previously as Odyssey Carillo-Sellers.)
