Press Release: SLPD makes arrests in barbershop shooting.

On October 25th, around 1 p.m., San Leandro police officers responded to multiple calls of shots fired at the Harrison Brothers barbershop, located at 2240 East 14th Street.  Arriving officers located two victims inside the business.  One victim was treated for minor injuries and released at the scene.  The second victim and co-owner of the barbershop, Jonathan Clay, suffered from gunshot wounds and was pronounced deceased by medical personnel. 
From video surveillance footage, it appeared two suspects entered the business and both brandished firearms to commit a robbery.  The suspects pistol-whipped Clay and also forcibly removed personal belongings from him.  During the robbery, Clay was able to draw a firearm and discharge it at the suspects.  The suspects both fired their weapons, killing Clay, and fled the scene. 

Detectives were able to quickly identify one of the suspects as 26-year-old Alexis Garcia of Oakland. 

On October 27th, California Highway Patrol officers arrested Garcia on unrelated charges following a vehicle pursuit initiated in Oakland.  Garcia was also arrested on charges relating to the barbershop shooting.  He was subsequently charged by the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office with homicide, robbery, assault with a firearm, and weapons violations.

During the course of the investigation, detectives identified 26-year-old Guillermo Camacho of Oakland as the second suspect.

On Monday, November 27th, SLPD detectives and SWAT operators were able to locate Camacho driving a stolen vehicle in the city of Oakland.  Camacho was taken into custody and arrested on charges stemming from the barbershop shooting as well as other charges.  A loaded 9mm handgun with an extended magazine was located inside the stolen vehicle driven by Camacho.    

Earlier today, Camacho was charged by the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office with homicide, robbery, assault with a firearm, auto theft, and weapons violations.
