Police: Oakley police activity connected to Concord homicide, suspect arrested


OAKLEY (KRON) — Police confirmed that an investigation in Oakley is connected to a Concord killing that took place early Saturday morning near Brenden Concord 14 movie theater.

Around 1:50 a.m., Concord police got a report of a shooting in the 1900 block of Salvio Street near Adobe Street in Concord. This is near the Nica Lounge.

Officers arrived within minutes and found a 43-year-old man on the ground, according to police.

The man died at the scene.

Officers ended up in a far out corner of the East Bay, Oakley, looking for a 27-year-old suspect connected to the shooting.

At 11:12 a.m. police issued a lock-down for Oakley residents between the 1800 and 1900 blocks of Teresa Lane.

That lockdown has since been lifted.

Officers later served a search warrant to a home in that area.

Police found the suspect after hearing that he was involved in a solo-car crash and taken to the hospital. The suspect is still recovering in the hospital and is in custody.

KRON4’s Philippe Djegal is on the scene.

He spoke to a man who says he is the father of the shooting suspect:
