Suspect in Custody for New Year’s Day Murder in Oakland’s Dogtown Neighborhood
OAKLAND — What started out as an argument between two young men turned deadly. One man is in custody for a fatal shooting on New Year’s Day and another man is in his early grave.
Marcus T. Reedquinn, a 23-year-old man, allegedly murdered 28-year-old Cameron Windom. The victim was shot to death in the Dogtown neighborhood of West Oakland at 9:07 p.m. on January 1 st.
Windom was standing outside a market on the 1400 block of 34 th Street when he was gunned down. Video recorded by a surveillance camera shows the suspect driving by before the suspect and victim had a verbal dispute.
Their argument took a turn for the worse, after the victim punched the suspect’s car. The suspect who was driving away from the scene made a U-turn and then allegedly shot the victim.
Reedquinn had two passengers in the car with him who witnessed the shooting. Police located him the following morning. He was arrested at Extended Stay America Suites, located at 3650 Mandela Parkway in Emeryville.
He apparently attempted to discard the murder weapon, which Oakland PD later recovered as evidence. He purportedly admitted using the pistol to shoot the victim.
Reedquinn was booked into Santa Rita Jail with bail denied, pending a plea hearing on January 24.
In addition to murder, Reedquinn faces 11 weapons-related charges. His charges include shooting from—and—at an occupied vehicle. Among other charges he is accused of carrying an unregistered concealed weapon.
