Lakewood Police and members of the South Sound Gang Task Force arrested the second subject in a gang-related shooting last month.

Larell Lee Harttlet was charged in Pierce Count Superior Court with two counts of first-degree assault and one count of second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm. He is being held in lieu of $300,000 bail.

He was identified as one of the shooters in an incident that occurred on Aug. 28 on the 10200 block of Lila Lane. According to Lakewood Police, rival gang members shot at each other after getting into an argument at a party.

Police responded at about 11:20 p.m. and found multiple shell casings and a pool of blood. Bullets from the shootout hit a house in the neighborhood, almost striking someone asleep inside.

Another man, Deandre Robinson, has been charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and other charges are being considered. He told investigators that he fired his weapon in self defense after Harttlet shot at him.
