Parking Dispute Sends a Man to Jail on Suspicion of Attempted Murder
SAN LEANDRO — A man working at a gas station has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. It seems the suspect who is an ex-con became enraged about a parking spot.
The suspect lost his cool at the Shell gas station located at 2175 Marina Boulevard. Someone parked his vehicle there for an extended period without authorization.
Tempers flared when the driver showed up. Before it was all over the driver was shot and seriously wounded.
On April 16 at 5:20 a.m., San Leandro police responded to a call about the shooting. The victim was subsequently transported to receive medical treatment.
In a prepared statement San Leandro Police Lt. Ali Khan said. “Working closely with Fremont police, detectives located and arrested the suspect a few hours later in Fremont.”
Sergio O. Williams, 31, was apprehended April 16 shortly after noon. Williams was booked into Santa Rita Jail at 7:26 p.m. Williams who sometimes uses “Sleepy” as a first name alias remains in custody ineligible for release on bond.
The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office subsequently filed 12 felony charges against him. Williams is scheduled to appear April 27 for a plea hearing at the East County Hall of Justice.
Charges facing Williams include attempted murder, causing great bodily injury and firearms- related charges. These include shooting at an occupied vehicle and illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
In 2008, Williams was convicted of second-degree robbery, and abuse of an elder/dependent adult. For this he was sentenced to six years in state prison.
