Three suspects have been arrested in connection with the March fatal beating of an East Tampa man in March.

The suspects, each from Tampa, face second-degree murder charges after their arrests at separate locations with the last 48 hours, police say.

Through tips from the community police arrested Jason Newson, 30; Tyrell Mingo, 21; and Donnell Mingo, 26.

On March 23, police responding to a report of aggravated battery in the 2900 block of 28th Avenue found Carlton “Cooda” Reed, 51, on his side in the street with severe injuries to his upper body.

Tampa Fire Rescue took Reed to Tampa General Hospital where he later died.
