Four suspects arrested in connection with double homicide

OCEANSIDE – A fourth suspect was arrested June 23 in connection with the double homicide of two teenagers last month at Libby Lake Park.
Tyrone Blackmon, 29, was arrested during a probation search at a Sun City residence and charged with being an accessory to murder with a gang allegation, according to police.
Oceanside detectives, SWAT team and a San Diego County fugitive task force conducted an early morning probation search at two Riverside County homes as part of the investigation.
Blackmon was at the home of Savalia McKnight, also a documented gang member, at the 27000 block of Spring Meadow Court in Sun City.
McKnight was also taken into custody for parole violation after authorities found ammunition in the home, according to acting Capt. Leonard Mata, of the Oceanside Police Department.
Oceanside SWAT also served a search warrant June 23 at the 38000 block of Clearbrook Drive in Murrieta, at which time Eric Allen was arrested for being a convicted felon and having possession of a firearm and ammunition and a gang allegation, Mata said.
The two teenagers, Fernando Solana, 16, and Sandra Salgado, 14, had been dating, according to police, adding that there is no evidence either victim was associated with a gang.
The teens were found at Calle Montecito Street, about 10:30 p.m. in May, at the northeast area of the park after police responded to calls of possible gunshots.
The investigation into their deaths is still ongoing, and any motive for the killings remains unknown.
