Police have arrested a suspect in the fatal shooting of a man in broad daylight on a Berkeley street in February. The suspect, identified as 21-year-old Jevon Calland, was arrested on an unrelated warrant by the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office in Hayward, Berkeley police said.
Berkeley police had already procured a warrant for Calland’s arrest as a suspect in the murder of 34-year-old Zontee Jones on Feb. 4 and after being alerted of his arrest, he was booked into Berkeley City Jail. Jones was found shot on Delaware Street between 10th Street and San Pablo Avenue at about 11 a.m. that day and was pronounced dead at a hospital a short time later, police said.
Investigators then found evidence implicating Calland in the shooting and obtained a warrant for his arrest. After he was in custody, Berkeley police executed a search warrant in Antioch related to the shooting. Police have not disclosed the evidence linking Calland to Jones’ killing.
