Authorities have released photos of two men wanted in connection to the fatal shooting of a 19-year-old San Leandro man during a dice game on the Hillside Elementary School grounds earlier this month.
According to the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, Sean Collins, Kevonte Gordon and Taheer Randall were playing dice with victim Trevion Foster on the school campus at about 8:45 p.m. on Feb. 13. Foster was shot and killed during an argument over a lost bet.
Randall was arrested on suspicion of homicide on Feb. 20, according to the sheriff’s office.
Collins and Gordon, however, remain at large. Warrants have been issued for their arrest.
The murder weapon is also outstanding, according to the sheriff’s office.
Collins, 19, is described as a black male adult standing 6 feet tall and weighing 150 pounds. He has brown eyes and black hair.
Gordon, also 19, is described as a black male adult standing about 5-foot-10 and weighing 150 pounds with brown eyes and black hair.
Friends and family were devastated by Foster’s death.
Foster attended San Lorenzo High School before graduating from McClymonds High School in Oakland in 2012, where Foster played football. Love for the athlete poured out on social media in the wake of his murder, as well as on Patch.
“In my 12 years of teaching, I have taught hundreds of young men. If I could make a list of five male students who would NOT meet this fate — you would be on the list. Losing any young person hurts — but it is especially hurtful when it is some really nice, respectful young man as yourself. My prayers are with your family and loved ones. I will miss you and what you would have become on this earth — dearly!” Rose Marr wrote on Patch.
“Your spirit is too strong for any of us to let you go. We love you and I know I’m fortunate because I’m one of the few on this planet that got a chance to witness you in action,” Samerial Lawrence Armstrong commented.
