LONG BEACH (CNS) — Police on Saturday said a 22-year-old man al­ready in custody at a state cor­rec­tional facility has been transferred to the Long Beach City Jail where he will face charges that include the shooting death of a 21-year-old woman in June 2018.

They also announced the arrest of three other people they believe had know­ledge of the murder and assisted Scott in avoiding prosecution.

Authorities on Thursday arranged for the custody transport of Rodney Scott of Los Angeles, from the Cal­if­ornia Correctional Center in Su­san­ville to the Long Beach Jail behind the belief that Scott is re­spon­sible for the June 28 shooting death of Imani Keith, the Long Beach Police De­part­ment reported.

They also believe Scott is respon­sible for a 2018 residential burglary in Los Angeles and is guilty of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. Scott was being held in lieu of $2 million bail, police said.

On Friday, police arrested Richard Scott, 21, of Los Angeles, who was booked on suspicion of being an ac­ces­sory after the fact and was being held on $1 million bail. Police did not dis­close if Rodney Scott was related to Richard Scott.

Christina Collier of Los Angeles, 23 was also arrested on suspicion of the same charge and was also being held in lieu of $1 million bail.

Dana Moore of Los Angeles, 49, was arrested on suspicion of the same charge and being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm.
