Police have arrested a second suspect in connection with a Feb. 14 shooting at the New Gethsemane Church of God In Christ that injured two brothers, Richmond police Sgt. Bisa French said today. A 16-year-old Richmond boy was arrested on a warrant at about 8 p.m. Saturday, French said. The first suspect, a 15-year-old Richmond boy, was arrested Thursday when police served a series of search warrants in connection with the shooting. A third suspect is still outstanding. The shooting happened at about 12:30 p.m. at the church, located at 2100 Roosevelt Ave., French said. Three males in black hooded sweatshirts entered the church and shot a 14-year-old boy and a 19-year-old man in front of about 100 people who were attending the service. The two victims, one of whom was shot in the shoulder and the other in the leg, are expected to survive. The shooting has prompted Bay Area religious leaders to launch an outreach program to combat violence. Jerry Macklin, who is the jurisdictional bishop for the Church of God In Christ in Northern California and the minister at Glad Tidings Church in Hayward, said last week that at least 5,000 people are planning to start knocking on doors in Richmond to reach out to residents, especially young people.

  • Reach out? Reach out to who? They need to reach out and grab these punks by the throat and throw their asses in in jail. What are they going to say to these punk cut throats to stop them? They can have all the candle light vigils and parades in the world and it won’t make a bit of difference. What a waste of time! They are tripping thinking they are going to make a difference doing a Reach out or Out Reach. PUT THEM IN JAIL!!!
