OAKLEY — A man 18 years old remains in custody in lieu of $3.5 million bond for a mass shooting. One 16-year-old boy was killed, and three other victims sustained gunshot wounds at a teenage house party.

Jason Walizada, a resident of Antioch, was arrested on October 25. Oakley police apprehended Walizada at 4:31 p.m., with help from the U.S. Marshals Service. He was booked into the Martinez Detention Facility on a Ramey Warrant on suspicion of homicide. Additional charges are pending.

The shootings occurred October 21 on Shannon Way in Oakley. Police responded to a noise complaint and left, approximately 30 minutes before the shootings were reported at 11:12 p.m.

An adult at the residence declined an Oakley PD offer to break up the party. Soon afterwards 25 or more teenagers arrived. These newcomers entered through a side gate because the front door was locked.

Gunfire erupted inside shortly afterwards, and everyone ran outside. At least 5 or 6 shots were fired. The suspect fled from the scene before the police returned.

The victim who was pronounced dead at the scene is Ke'Marion Tucker, 16, of Brentwood. Three other victims received medical treatment at a hospital. One is a 17-year-old girl, and the other two victims are boys, 15 and 16 years old.

In a prepared statement the Oakley Police Department said. “The arrest of Walizada does not represent the sole focus of our investigation. We will continue to investigate every lead in this case.”
