OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Four people were arrested when warrants were served at four locations in Oakland Tuesday morning as part of an investigation into a January murder, a police sergeant said.
Oakland police SWAT teams working with other Bay Area law enforcement agencies served the four high-risk warrants in various parts of the city beginning at 5:30 a.m., Sgt. Chris Bolton said.
Police have not disclosed the locations of the raids or the names of the people arrested.
One raid appears to have been carried out near the corner of East 20th Street and 13th Avenue. A resident who lives in the 1900 block of 12th Avenue said about five police cars were still parked outside a home there around 9 a.m.
Tuesday morning’s raids were related to a murder that occurred early the morning of Jan. 29.
