Murder charges filed against two Oakland men

A criminal charge involving violence is very serious as a conviction will likely result in a lengthy prison sentence. These can include assault charges, robbery, domestic violence, attempted murder and murder. When such charges have been filed it is important to avoid making an assumption of guilt until all of the evidence is presented. In some cases, a person in Oakland may be found guilty of a lesser charge or may be proven to have been unaware that a crime was taking place.

Authorities allege that after their cousin was killed, two Oakland men planned revenge and at least one of them opened fire when the target’s apartment door was opened. However, instead of shooting the intended victim, law enforcement say that an eight-year-old girl was shot to death as well as two other children and a grandmother. The men are alleged to have known that there were children in the apartment.

It is unknown whether the men admitted anything to the officers but criminal charges were filed against both of them, including murder and attempted murder. The men were arrested on separate days in Houston, Texas, and Berkeley, California. It was not released how the men were connected to the shootings.

When allegations of such a violent crime are made, it may be in the best interests of that person to talk with an attorney experienced in handling such cases. The attorney may be able to negotiate a plea deal on their behalf, advise them of what legal options are available to him or her, and conduct a separate investigation of the crime itself.
