RICHMOND (KRON) — A 20-year-old Richmond gang member accused of killing another man last week turned himself into police on Thursday, Lt. Felix Tan said.

Police say Jeremy Moore “viciously gunned down” Otilio Martinez, 18, “without provocation” on Sept. 19 at about 11:30 p.m. on the 5100 block of Bayview Avenue as Martinez was walking home.

A motive for the killing is still unclear, Tan said.

Martinez was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said Moore is a member of the SWERVE TEAM gang in Richmond. He was wanted on a $2 million warrant.

The incident occurred in the same area where a deadly shooting took place earlier that day. Police do not believe that the two shootings are connected.
