An ex-convict has been charged with murder for the fatal shooting of a man in East Oakland last month, prosecutors said. Jardine Branner, 30, of Oakland, is charged in connection with the shooting of 39-year-old Darryl Perry of San Francisco inside a house in the 9200 block of E Street in Oakland at about 8:15 p.m. on Nov. 3. Perry, who police said was shot multiple times, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Oakland police Officer Michael Jaeger wrote in a probable cause statement that witnesses identified Branner as the suspect who shot Perry and physical evidence also linked Branner to the homicide. Branner was arrested on Nov. 29 at his federal probation officer’s office in Oakland and charges were filed against him the following day.
In addition to murder, Branner is charged with being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm. Prosecutors say that Branner was convicted of second-degree robbery in juvenile court in Orange County, of unlawful firearm activity in San Francisco in 2012, and of being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition in federal court in San Francisco in 2014. Branner is being held at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin without bail and is scheduled to return to court on Dec. 21 to enter a plea.
