Police have arrested a man wanted for the murder of a 20-year-old Alameda woman in Oakland last month. Oakland Police Department problem-solving officers and members of the department’s Gangs/Guns Intelligence Task Force arrested Julius Scott, 26, of Oakland, at 6 p.m. Friday, police said. Scott is suspected in an Aug. 24 shooting that killed Shanika Latham and wounded her 25-year-old boyfriend, police said.
