Both brothers have been identified as members of the OKC Bloods gang. Donald and Diallo Scott have multiple arrests and convictions in multiple Oklahoma counties. Their charges range from illegal drugs to domestic abuse, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Authorities have identified one suspect as Garrett Harjo, who is said to be affiliated with the Cripps gang. The Sheriff said Harjo and a relative, whose name has not been released, left the scene, and they are believed to be headed to Texas.

The suspect vehicle is described as an 80's model, brown, Buick LeSabre with a light brown top. The car has an Oklahoma license plate.

Sheriff says there is gang activity everywhere, but gang violence like this is rare in Arcadia.

The shooting happened at the home of the victims' relative, located in the 100 block of West 4th St. The family would gather every year for a 4th of July barbeque.

The rivalry between the Cripps and the Bloods is alive and well all over the nation, Sheriff Whetsel said.
