Oakland woman charged with ordering fatal drive-by shooting

OAKLAND (KRON) — An Oakland woman was involved and charged for allegedly ordering a drive-by shooting that killed one man and wounded another that she said assaulted her in West Oakland last month, according to police officials Wednesday.

The woman was identified as Rosalyn Green, 21, who was arrested Sunday morning in Berkeley, near the corner of Shattuck and Ashby avenues.

The alleged shooter, 32-year-old Daniel Casey, was arrested in February about a week after the shooting.

Court documents state that Green had been assaulted by another man on Feb. 11 and wanted to retaliate and that’s when she made the phone call to Casey to help her.

Casey found the two men and drove by the 1000 block of 24th Street near Linden Street at 11:10 a.m. that day, shooting both and left one victim dead, according to police officials.

35-year-old Albert Easley of Oakland, died 90 minutes after being taken to the hospital.

Police quickly identified Casey as a suspect and obtained a warrant for his arrest. U.S. Marshals deputies spotted him walking in the 2400 block of 24th Avenue in Oakland on the afternoon of Feb. 17 and arrested him.

When Casey was arrested, deputies found him with a loaded stolen gun and determined he was on probation for a 2013 conviction for receiving stolen property. He was charged with murder and attempted murder as well as being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Casey and Green are both being held in Santa Rita Jail without bail, according to jail records. Green was charged on Tuesday but her next
court appearance is not listed. Casey is scheduled to return to court on May 23.
