Alameda police arrest 6 juveniles in teen killing

Alameda police arrested six juveniles between the ages of 13 and 16 today and Thursday in connection with the shooting death of Ichinkhorloo Bayarsaikhan on Halloween night.

Police said two 16-year-old boys who were previously arrested for the death of the Alameda High School student should not be charged and are asking for the charges to be dismissed.

Bayarsaikhan, 15, was shot at approximately 10 p.m. at Washington Park while she and a group of about 10 friends were being robbed the evening of Oct. 31, according to police.

Lt. Art Fuentes said police are asking the District Attorney's Office to charge the six new suspects with homicide and robbery.

Fuentes, referring to the suspects arrested in the last two days, said, “We're confident we have everyone who was responsible for this tragedy in custody.”

“Information indicates the individuals arrested on Tuesday may have been in the general vicinity of the homicide and peripherally associated to the suspect group, but not specificallyinvolved in the robbery attempt or homicide. Their association and possible involvement in the crime remains under investigation,” according to an Alameda Police Department statement.

Fuentes said victim's family members are “thankful” that the six suspects have been arrested.
