A suspect in an Antioch homicide believed to be hiding in Nevada also skipped out on $150,000 bail in San Francisco after he was allegedly caught with a loaded gun at an April marijuana celebration in Golden Gate Park. Carlos Gabrielle Ventura, 22, is wanted in the Aug. 24 murder of 30-year-old Deon Anderson of San Francisco, according to Antioch police. Anderson was found shot multiple times in the 200 block of Lawton Street at about 12:20 a.m. that morning.
U.S. Marshals in Nevada said last Friday that Ventura is believed to be hiding in the Stead area of Reno and has significant ties to the northern Nevada area. A statement from the Marshals Service said that Ventura has a significant criminal history and should be considered armed and dangerous. He had previously been arrested allegedly carrying a loaded gun and concentrated cannabis at the 4/20 celebration in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park on April 20.
A convicted felon on parole, he was prohibited from owning a gun and was charged with carrying the gun, having a concealed firearm and possession of the concentrated cannabis, San Francisco district attorney’s spokesman Alex Bastian said. He pleaded not guilty to the charges in April and was released on $150,000 bail in June, but missed a Sept. 15 court appearance and is also considered a fugitive in San Francisco, Bastian said.
