Murder suspect wanted in San Jose arrested by Federal Marshals service
San Jose Police authorities announced the arrest of a wanted murder suspect on Tuesday, December 2. According to Sgt. Heather Randol with the San Jose Police Department, “the U.S. Marshals Service arrested 26-year-old Jaime Lockett from Stockton, California after serving a search warrant for the arrest of Lockett.” The warrant was served on behalf of the San Jose Police Department, charging Lockett with murder. “Lockett was transported back to San Jose and booked into the Santa Clara County Jail,” Randol said. (The initial arrest report spelled his first name as Jamie.)
Records show Lockett was picked up at 12:21 at or near the Park West Place shopping center at 8 Mile Road and Trinity Parkway in north Stockton, just off the Interstate 5 Freeway. At that time, he claimed a San Jose residence.
The San Jose Police Department reported that “on October 30, 2014 at approximately 11:35 P.M., San Jose Police “911” Communications Center received information about shots fired and a person down in the area of Santa Clara Street and 2nd Street in Downtown San Jose.”
When officers arrived they located an adult male victim suffering from at least one gunshot wound. The victim, later identified as 24-year-old Tyrone Fryman from Hayward California, was transported to a local area hospital where he later died.
Homicide Unit Investigators responded to the scene to conduct interviews and investigation into the reason for the shooting. Randol said, “The motive and circumstances surrounding shooting are unknown at this time. It was determined the shooting occurred after an altercation, and does not appear to be random.” The department believes there may be others involved in the altercation that cost Fryman his life. They have not been identified and remain at large.
Records show that Jamie Lockett had been arrested on November 7 in Alameda County for driving without a license and under the influence. At that time he reported a Stockton home address.
The San Jose Police Department is asking if anyone who has any information regarding the above case is urged to contact Detective Sgt. Ray Avalos or Detective Brian McDonald of the San Jose Police Department’s Homicide Unit at (408)277-5283.
