U.S. Marshalls Aid In Capture Of Oakland Murder Suspect
OAKLEY (BCN) — A fugitive wanted by Oakland police for a November homicide was captured Wednesday in Oakley by U.S. Marshals, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.
Terrell Scott was deemed a person of interest in the Nov. 5 shooting death of Kevin Lockett in the 600 block of El Paseo Drive in Oakland that also injured another victim.
Marshals working with the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office and police in Oakland, Antioch and Oakley tracked Scott to the Oakley area and arrested him after a brief foot pursuit, according to the Marshals Service.
Scott was booked into Alameda County Jail.
The Northern District of California U.S. Marshals, which works to arrest fugitives wanted by virtually any jurisdiction in the U.S., led the investigation and dispatched a regional task force to the Oakley area.
Last year, Marshals task forces arrested more than 27,000 state and local fugitives on felony charges.
