Berkeley police have announced rewards for information leading to
the arrest and conviction of suspects in two recent homicide cases.
Police announced a $47,000 reward for information about two
suspects who are still at large following a fatal shooting in Berkeley last
Saturday that led to a high-speed chase that killed two innocent bystanders
in North Oakland.
The incident began shortly after 6:30 p.m. Saturday when a
Berkeley police officer heard gunshots in the area of Allston Way and 10th
Street in West Berkeley.
Officers responded and found 25-year-old Charles Davis of Berkeley
on Allston Way west of San Pablo Avenue. He had been shot multiple times and
was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police then chased a Cadillac occupied by four men who were
fleeing the area.
The Cadillac crashed into a Mazda and a pedestrian at Aileen
Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Way in Oakland, killing both the pedestrian
and the driver of the Mazda.
The driver of the Mazda was 27-year-old Brentwood resident Todd
Perea and the pedestrian was 41-year-old Floyd Ross of Berkeley.
After the crash, police arrested 24-year-old Anthony Price of
Oakland and 22-year-old Stephon Anthony of San Leandro but the other two
suspects managed to flee the area on foot and are still at large.
On Tuesday, the Alameda County District Attorney's office charged
Anthony, whom authorities believe was driving the Cadillac, and Price with
three counts each of murder as well as the special circumstance of committing
multiple murders, which could make them eligible for the death penalty.
They also were charged with weapon and gang enhancements.
Berkeley police today also announced a $17,000 reward for
information on the shooting death of 18-year-old Maurice Robertson in the
1300 block of 67th Street in Berkeley about 11:30 a.m. on May 4.
