FAIRFIELD — Three of five suspects in the deadly April 11 Grande Circle shootout pleaded not guilty to murder charges and attempted murder charges Friday.

Donald R. Hill Jr., 24, Darren J. McFadden, 19, and Trayvon L. Wayfer, 19, all of Fairfield, were all ordered back to court May 6 when a date for a probable cause hearing may be scheduled.

Authorities are still looking for Timothy J. Mitchell III, 20, and Danny R. Jeffreys, 19, who they believe did the shooting that killed Tereaun Berry and wounded an unidentified 25-year-old man from Vacaville.

Berry, 26, also from Vacaville, was shot multiple times in an afternoon dispute between two groups in the street and in the parking lot of a Grande Circle apartment complex.

    Do the crime, plead not guilty. That's how it goes here and they often walk. Good work by PD let's hope they got their guy(s).

    Pleading Guilty proves they are Cowards. They are afraid of Jail & Prison. Sissys who are only brave with a gun, but in real life .. total cowards.

    Pleading Guilty only proves that he is using his constitutional right. Nothing you can do about it.

    So all of you clearly read that the two actual shooters are still being looked for, how does it make the rest of them cowards if they didn't do the shooting? I would plead not guilty if I didn't do the shootings to morons

    It could be the rest of us realize that one need not be the shooter to be guilty of this murder. Try understanding the law before commenting. As for your use of the word "morons" you are projecting.

    Perhaps if the State Legislature is not too busy running guns and not too busy associating with known felons and not too busy with passing more important legislation like a ban on plastic bags they could consider this law: All schools from k-13 have an 8-hour class session on the following topics: The felony murder rule, and the provocative acts doctrine. It might be tough but I'm sure the schools can slip this class into the schedule overly laden with "victimology" studys. The class should be repeated each year for the benefit of students such as DA above.
