Two men have been charged in connection with the death of a 34-year-old who died while trying to recover his laptop when it was stolen.

Byron OJ Reed Jr. and Javon Lee, identified as the suspect killers of Zeng, were taken into custody Friday in California’s Alameda County Superior Court on charges related to the death of Shuo Zeng in Oakland on New Year’s Eve.

Earlier, at about 11.30 am, Zeng had been sitting by the door of a Starbucks in Oakland.

Oakland police claimed surveillance video showed two thugs stealing Zeng’s laptop, then jumping into the waiting car.

Zeng then ran out of the building and chased after the thief in an attempt to get back his laptop.

Authorities believe that Reed was driving the getaway car and that Lee had been involved in stealing the laptop, which facilitated the robbery and murder.

He dived through the window of the getaway car as it began to drive off, but that “There was a struggle and I think they pushed him out and then he got dragged”, ABC7 was reported.

Zeng had head injuries after being dragged by the suspects’ SUV and flung against a parked car as the SUV sped off. He then died at the hospital shortly before 5 pm.

Suspect Killers Charged & Arrested

Byron OJ Reed Jr., who is 22 years old, and Javon Lee, who is 21 years old, taken into the custody in California’s Alameda County Superior Court on charges related to the death.

Reed is charged with murder and the special circumstance of committing a murder during a robbery, while Lee was charged with involuntary manslaughter. They are both also being charged with second-degree robbery, NBC Bay Area reported.

 

Investigation Reports

When a judge said that Reed was being held without bail, Reed’s sister, Shaquila Reed, of Oakland, was believed to have shouted “Why no bail?”

After the hearing, Shaquila and members of Lee’s family were said to have gotten into a fight outside the courthouse, requiring four deputies to separate them.

The fight was said to have been due to Lee’s family being upset about what Shaquila had told reporters prior to the hearing – that she believed Reed is innocent because he was babysitting her child at her home when the robbery was committed, KPIX reported.
