Oakland Police Orchestrate and Safely Serve High Risk Warrants at Four Locations; Four Suspects Arrested

The Oakland Police Department, in conjunction with assistance from local Bay Area law enforcement agencies, safely served four high risk warrants at four separate Oakland locations beginning at 5:30am this morning. Four arrests tied to a January 29, 2012 murder were safely made. The investigation is on-going and no information regarding exact locations or arrestees is available at this time.

On January 29, 2012, at 1:48 AM, Oakland police officers responded to the 1700 block of 20th Avenue to investigate a reported shooting; upon their arrival, officers found an extensive crime scene and learned that a total of four people had been injured by gunfire. One of the injured parties, 20-year-old Jordan Chhit, succumbed to his wounds on-scene. The other three victims sustained various degrees of injuries and were treated at local hospitals. Investigators believe this homicide was gang related, and this morning’s arrests are an important step in this investigation. All arrests are based on probable cause and issued “Ramey” warrants; formal charges have not yet been filed.

The Oakland Police Department would like to thank the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department, Fremont Police Department, San Leandro Police Department, Union City Police Department, and the East Bay Regional Parks Police Department for their assistance. Oakland Police SWAT relied heavily on outside agency assistance in order to serve these warrants in a manner that provided optimal safety for officers, nearby residents, and suspects.

OPD Major Crimes Section investigators continue their search at these locations for additional evidence and suspect leads. The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information related to the murder of Jordan Chhit is asked to contact investigators at (510)238-3821. Alternatively, anonymous tips may be submitted by text message or web form:
