FAIRFIELD — Three of five suspects in the deadly April 11 Grande Circle shootout made their first court appearances Friday.

Donald R. Hill Jr., 24, Darren J. McFadden, 19, and Trayvon L. Wayfer, 19, all of Fairfield, were arraigned on murder and attempted murder charges for the shooting death of Tereaun Berry.

Berry, 26, was shot multiple times in a dispute between two groups on the 1900 block of Grande Circle. He later died at NorthBay Medical Center. An unidentified 25-year-old man from Vacaville was also wounded in the exchange of gunfire.

All three suspects had private defense attorneys appointed to handle their cases and all three suspects agreed to wait until an April 25 court appearance in front of Judge Robert Bowers to enter pleas to the charges. All three suspects were ordered to remain in jail without bail.

Prosecutors on Thursday filed felony charges against two other suspects in the shootings. Neither Timothy J. Mitchell III or Danny R. Jeffreys, 19, have been arrested or arraigned. Mitchell’s age was not available.

    Its just sad because they deserve the worst possible punishment for taking someone else's life, which nobody has the right to do! However, now us taxpayers have to pay for them to have "private" defense lawyers, room & board, food and even health care while on trial and in the prison. It is a damn shame! We all know, the "rehabilitation" correctional systems are far from just that and all they do is cause more damage, if one will be released later in life. They are usually so screwed up from the experience in there they just commit more crimes! I say put em to work, maybe in a morgue so they can see what they did!

    I wouldnt trust any of these "people" enough to even be around dead bodies. All of these "people" had extensive criminal pasts and have been in and out of jail NUMEROUS times. Our system has no backbone and none of these people are afraid to go to court, jail, or prison.

    What is this guy above talking about? The term you people was never used. Are you implying cause they're black or cause you are? Maybe instead of instantly thinking people are racist or whatever let them speak their peace. Pretty sure the quotations around the word "these" not YOU is implying that they're is no humanity in them therefore justifying not recognizing them as people. What are you doing to influence the lives of these young kids? Hmmmm????

    Hey Robert Lerkins.... I was referring to the criminal as "these people." If it makes you feel better I will use "those people" to describe these criminals as well. Either way, I am pro genocide against the career criminal regardless of what color, age, nation of origin, sexual preference, or disability they might have!

    Well, of course the DR comment board has undergone the same degree of "ghettoization" that Fairfield itself has experienced. Some of the comments here provide a brief glimpse into how the friends and family around "those" people think. It is sad, but not surprising.
