The District Attorney’s office in Oakland, California announced Wednesday that two men have been charged in the murder of an innocent bystander, Wing Wong.
Tramonn Gray faces up to 54 years to life in prison if convicted after bullets police say were intended for someone else pierced the home of Wong and struck her fatally while she slept on her couch in September, reports Fox2.
The 32 year old is charged with four felony counts, including murder, attempted murder, shooting into an inhabited dwelling, and shooting at an occupied motor vehicle.
DA Pamela Price charged Alonzo Dyer, 35, with possession of a firearm and ammunition by a prohibited person. His role in the murder is still being investigated.
Two more suspects are being sought in this case, acting Oakland homicide Lt. Bradley Baker said to Fox2. Police say they have Grey on video firing a rifle at a Chevy Trailblazer.
“There’s nothing like losing a mother or a daughter, a wife, a partner. I can’t even imagine what they’re going through, what they’ve gone through. And so I pray that this arrest is a step towards justice for them and healing for all who loved and knew Wing Wong,” said Oakland Mayor Sheng Thao.
Price held a news conference announcing the arrests.
“And what I want to say to those who have continued to perpetuate senseless violence in this community is that you will be held accountable,” she said.
