Murder charges were filed against Mark Sanders in the killing of Oakland police Officer Tuan Le.
Two men are charged with murder and special circumstances by Alameda County D.A. Pamela Price in connection to the slaying of an Oakland police officer. Police say there may be more arrests coming in this case.
Other court documents show it’s not Mark Sanders’ first time being arrested on suspicion of homicide — or of burglarizing a cannabis facility. In April 2014, when Sanders was 17, the U.S. Marshals arrested him in Modesto in connection with the killing of 18-year-old Marcellus Perry.
Perry was killed during a February 2014 shootout in East Oakland near Bancroft and 77th avenues involving multiple gunmen. In 2015, Sanders pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter in juvenile court and was sentenced to more than ten years but released within five, according to law enforcement sources.
