Police today identified a suspect wanted for the murder of an 18-year-old Brentwood rapper in a Pittsburg park earlier this month. Clarence Cater, 18 is being sought for the Sept. 7 shooting death of Davon George at Buchanan Park while George and a group of about five people were filming a rap video there that evening, Lt. Rathnesh Raman said. Police have already arrested two other suspects in the killing, including 21-year-old Oakley resident Ohmad Burks and a 15-year-old Antioch boy who has not been identified because of his age. The teen was taken to juvenile hall and Burks was taken to county jail in Martinez where he is being held on more than $1 million bail. Police believe the shooting, which took place after the suspects tried to rob George, was sparked by a two-year feud between the suspects and the victim and his friends, all of whom live in East Contra Costa County. “It’s been an ongoing feud our suspects have with our victims,” Raman said. “We believe a portion of it was related to rap music and the production of rap music.”
Police said the suspects arrived at the park at Harbor and Buchanan streets a short time after 6 p.m. and got into a verbal
confrontation with George and his friends. The suspects then tried to rob George and one suspect shot him as he fled, Raman said. Officers responded to reports of the shooting around 6:20 p.m. and found George suffering from a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Raman said that the two that have already been arrested have been charged with murder and other felonies, and a murder charge has been filed for Cater, who remains at large.
