OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Oakland police are seeking the public’s assistance in locating two possible suspects in the fatal shooting of a 5-year-old boy outside his family’s taco truck last year.

Gabriel Martinez, Jr. was gunned down while with his mother and father at their family business at 55th Avenue and International Boulevard on Dec. 30 around 8:45 p.m.
