OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Two people have been charged in connection with the slaying of an 8-year-old Oakland girl, who was fatally shot after answering the front door at her friend's apartment during a sleepover.
Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O'Malley said Tuesday 22-year-old Darnell Williams fired the shots that killed Alaysha Carradine and wounded three others on July 17. Also arrested was 27-year-old Joe Carroll.
Williams and Carroll were charged with murder. They were scheduled to enter pleas on Tuesday in Alameda County Superior Court.
Investigators believe the shootings were gang-related and in retaliation for a shooting hours earlier in Berkeley.
