Police identify third suspect in Black Friday Walmart shooting

Investigators have identified an 18-year-old man as the third suspect allegedly involved in a shooting outside a San Leandro Walmart store on Black Friday, police said today.

Queron Foreman, an Oakland resident, has been identified as the driver of the suspect vehicle during the shooting, which occurred at about 1:50 a.m. on Nov. 25 in the parking lot of the store at 15555 Hesperian Blvd.

Today’s announcement comes a day after another suspect in the case, 29-year-old Detwone Watson, was arrested at a home in Oakland.

Another suspect, Tony Phillips, 20, of Oakland, was already in custody while a 16-year-old Oakland resident, who was also allegedly present during the robbery, has been questioned and released pending further investigation, police said.

Investigators believe that on the morning of the shooting, Watson and Phillips were passengers in a two-door burgundy Buick Riviera driven by Foreman that pulled up in the parking lot behind the three victims, all cousins from San Leandro in their early 20s.

Christopher, Rafael and Javier Murillo, the three victims, had been standing by their car in the parking lot when Watson approached and pulled out a gun while Phillips tried to steal a gold necklace from Rafael Murillo, police said.

A fight ensued, during which Watson allegedly shot Christopher Murillo, striking him in the neck, according to police. Murillo survived the shooting.

Watson and Foreman allegedly drove off after the shooting while the victims held Phillips until police arrived and arrested him.

Phillips and Watson, who surrendered to police around 11 a.m. Thursday at a home in East Oakland, are being held on suspicion of attempted murder, attempted robbery and robbery, police said.

Foreman remains outstanding and is being considered armed and dangerous because the firearm used in the shooting is still outstanding, according to police.

“The best advice I can give Queron is to turn himself in to police because he will have to take responsibility for the decisions he made,” police Sgt. Ted Henderson said in a statement.
