On September 14th, 2017 on 42nd Street between Martin Luther King Jr. Way and Telegraph Avenue in Oakland, the then 28 year old defendant stole 44 year old Coleman’s bicycle and began riding away with it. Coleman, along with two other witnesses, chased after the defendant in an attempt to get the bike back. The defendant fell off the bike, allowing for two of the witnesses to catch up.
Immediately when the two witnesses caught up to him, Standley pulled out a revolver and pointed it at one of them. When Coleman arrived a short time later, the defendant turned and shot him once in the cest.READ MORE: UPDATE: Police Shoot, Kill Armed Suspect Outside International Terminal at SFO
