Authorities announced charges Tuesday in the fatal shootings last year of a 7-year-old boy and a teenager in separate incidents police say were linked to an ongoing gang feud.

Charles Adam Hall, 17, was killed Sept. 1 in a drive-by shooting in Mid-Wilshire. Police said gunshots were fired at Hall from a white four-door sedan in the 1400 block of South Redondo Boulevard.

On Dec. 2, Taalib Pecantte, 7, was a passenger in a car with his mother and a man when he was fatally shot in Mid-City about two miles away from the first killing.

The two shootings were linked to an ongoing gang feud, said Los Angeles Police Det. Steven Katz. No further details were provided.

Four people, including two brothers, Tradel Billy Faniel, 28, and Windel Roman Faniel, 26, were charged with murder and attempted murder in connection with Taalib’s killing, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.

Paul Eugene Jamar, 19, and Danielle Peters, 31, were charged with murder and attempted murder, according to the criminal complaint.

“They’re all associates,” Katz said of the defendants, who were arrested last Thursday.
