STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) - Three men are facing murder and attempted murder charges in a shootout with Stockton police during which another suspect was killed.

The Record of Stockton reports that Darold Jarvis and Kevin Ou, both 24, and 19-year-old Darance Leav were arraigned on Wednesday.

Authorities say the three along with 27-year-old Joseph Brooks opened fire at a house last week, wounding a 70-year-old woman, before leading law enforcement officials on a high-speed chase that ended in a gun battle when their van spun out.

Brooks was shot and killed. Jarvis was shot in the arm.

The three defendants are facing a murder charge for allegedly provoking Brooks' death. All three are also facing gang enhancements.

Jarvis' mother, Eileen Galvez, says her son was not one of the van's occupants and is not in a gang.
