Wild Oakland double homicide has resulted in felony cases against three men, but no murder charges thus far

Two face gun charges

OAKLAND, Calif. — A frenzied double homicide at a local gas station in June resulted in felony charges against three men identified as suspects by police, but none of those arrested have been charged with killing either victim, according to court records.

The three felony cases were all filed following a shootout on June 4 at a gas station on 66th Avenue and San Leandro Street, where at least three people fired guns and both victims were shot while fleeing to safety. According to authorities, all three suspects were identified using surveillance footage.

Idriek Patterson, 23, of Newark, and Anteasa Collins, 25, of Stockton, were killed at different points during the shootout. Collins was taken to a hospital with a gunshot wound to the head and pronounced dead the same night, according to authorities.

Around 5:30 a.m., the shooting was reported. Just as two cars pulled into the gas station, gunfire erupted. Patterson was in a Buick with a woman and a man identified by police as Damarea Jones, 30, of Oakland. According to police, Collins was in a Hyundai with Dominic Gates, 29, and Sir Cameron Young, 21.

Authorities claim that Gates and Young ran up to the Buick and started shooting, prompting Jones to return fire. Patterson attempted to flee for cover but was fatally shot, allegedly by Gates.

According to authorities, the two then attempted to flee in the Hyundai but inadvertently passed Jones, who fired into the vehicle and struck Collins.

According to authorities, all three men were identified from surveillance footage. Investigators also claim to have recognized Gates and Young from popular rap videos the two have recorded together.

Gates later admitted to dropping Collins off at the hospital, and police noticed Collins had a tattoo on her neck that said “Dominic,” authorities say, establishing a connection between them.

Young has been charged in connection with the June 4 shooting with possessing an assault weapon, discharging a firearm with gross negligence, and possessing a firearm within city limits. He is also facing unrelated gun charges related to an arrest three weeks later. According to court records, Gates has been charged with failing to register as a sex offender due to a prior conviction for pimping a girl aged 16 or younger.

Jones is accused of being a felon in possession of a firearm. According to court records, he has a 2019 evading police conviction that prevents him from possessing firearms. In addition to the gun he allegedly fired into the Hyundai, police say they discovered a disassembled pistol hidden in the heater during a search of his home, as well as a shotgun and an assault rifle.

During Jones’ arrest and search of his Oakland home on July 3, police believe he was with a woman who was present during the shooting. Authorities claim they also discovered the Buick, which was riddled with bullet holes.

All three men have been released on bail. The charges are still being pursued.
