Two young men have been charged with murder in the fatal shooting of Jasper Wu.
According to ABC 7 San Francisco, the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday with murder and special gang enhancements for Wu’s death in 2021.
On November 6, 2021, the 23-month-old was riding in the car with his family on Interstate 880 in Oakland, California. Wu was struck by a stray bullet and killed. According to KRON 4, the prosecution believes that the two suspects were attempting to shoot at another vehicle with an AR-15-style rifle.
The two suspects Ivory Bivens, 24, and Trevor Green, 22, face life in prison if convicted, CBS News reports. The man in the car they were shooting at has been charged with felony possession of a firearm.
“We will continue to hold these men accountable for these serious charges that will likely land them behind bars for the rest of their lives,” said Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price, according to KRON 4.
