EUREKA, Calif. (AP) -- Police in Northern California say they are looking for three men who may know something about a fatal shooting that may be a hate crime.

Eureka Police Det. Ron Harpham said Friday that investigators want to interview the men who spoke with Holly Grigsby and David "Joey" Pedersen.

Grigsby and Pederson are accused of fatally shooting Reginald Alan Clark outside a grocery store on Oct. 4.

They both told the Yuba Appeal-Democrat newspaper this week that they killed Clark because he was black.

Yuba County District Attorney Pat McGrath said the couple is accused of killing three others, including Pedersen's father, during a murder spree across Washington, Oregon and California.

McGrath said they are being held at the Yuba County jail and expects them be extradited to back to Washington next week.
