Police has mentioned that Skinner died after he attempted to hail a cab and unintentionally come into contact with a passing vehicle. The passengers of a black SUV allegedly confronted him for no apparent reason, assaulted and kicked him to the ground. Those occupants of the SUV, then allegedly drove over Skinner before leaving the scene.

These latest arrests are result of a fresh plea for information from investigators about a month ago, when new details from were released in the investigation, including a new image of the SUV. Police had offered a $50,000 reward for anyone providing information that could lead to the identification, arrest and conviction of those responsible for Skinner’s death, in addition to the $100,000 reward promised by Skinner’s family.
