Information sought in death of rapper

Wed., Dec. 28, 2011

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information that leads to the arrest of six men charged in a fatal confrontation between two aspiring rappers at a Spokane hotel.

Jermaine S. Bedford, 22; Kalen J. Bedford, 21; Rashad F. Toussiant, 25; Roderick D. Shanks, 21; and Tyrone J. Carell, 23, are wanted for second-degree assault. Stafone N. “Stix” Fuentes, 27, is charged with first-degree assault.

The charges stem from a Nov. 27 fight at the Quality Inn, 110 E. Third Ave., that led to the shooting death of Jose J. “Junior” Solis, 21, of Moses Lake. 

Aaron A. Maxwell, 23, Anthony L. Fuentes, 29, and Michael J. Charles, 34, already have been arrested. John A. “Lil Danger” Castro, 27, was arrested just after the homicide and remains in jail on a second-degree murder charge. Castro faces life in prison if convicted under the state’s three-strikes law because of his criminal history.

Anyone with information on the current location of any of the six men is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS (8477) or submit tips online. Photos of the suspects can be viewed at
