Murders suspect faces ‘Life Without Parole’ for Oct 30, 2014 shooting
Follow up: 27-year-old Jamie Ramone Lockett is facing charges under PC 187, felony homicide. Lockett is accused of the murder of 24-year-old Tyrone Fryman. The charge holds an allegation under PC 190.2 (a) (15), which ads the penalty of death, and/or life without parole. Lockett also has prior allegations in which he was charged with a violent felony under PC 211, 212.5(c), robbery in which he served a prison term for the offense.
Lockett is expected to appear before the Honorable Allison M. Danner on March 6 at 9:00 AM in Dept 33 for pre-trail hearings, before facing a jury of his peers for the shooting death of Fryman.
According to the San Jose Police Department, “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.”
Lockett was arrested on December 2 after Homicide investigators were able to piece together evidence that identified him as the suspect in the fatal shooting. Lockett was living in Stockton at the time of the shooting and was arrested by the Federal Marshals Service and transported back to San Jose to be booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail for felony murder.
According to Sgt. Heather Randol of the San Jose Police Department, “It was determined the shooting occurred after an altercation and does not appear to be random.” Court records have been sealed until the trial is underway. However, SJPD Homicide Investigators believe that Lockett intentionally killed Fryman while he was lying in wait, adding additional charges under PC 190.2(a)(15).
