Sweet Jimmie’s shooting suspect arrested

30-year-old Germaine Latchison was shot to death last night in the East Oakland neighborhood of  Sobrante Park. Latchison was found by officers responding to reports of shots fired in the 600 block of El Paseo Drive around 11:30 PM. He had been struck once by gunfire and was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

Earlier today, OPD announced they are holding  22-year-old Oakland resident Clem Thompkins in connection with the April 25th murders of Billie Jenkins and Adam Williams at Sweet Jimmie’s near Jack London Square. Jenkins, 27, and Williams, 23, were fatally wounded when a gunman armed with an assault rifle opened fire in the restaurant. Five other people were wounded in the incident.

Thompkins was arrested in Richmond yesterday by SWAT officers from the Richmond Police Department. He is being charged with two counts of murder by the Alameda County District Attorney.

Thompkins is being charged with two counts of murder and five counts of attempted murder with gang enhancement charges.Thompkins is considered a Lower Bottoms gang member by Oakland Police.

On April 25th, Thompkins and other gang members reportedly got into an argument with members of a rival gang outside Sweet Jimmie’s. Thompkins and his companions left briefly. When Thompkins returned to Sweet Jimmie’s with the assault weapon, he got into an argument with someone at the door of the restaurant whom he mistook for a rival gang member.

Thompkins’ arraignment will be at 2 PM tomorrow at the Wiley M. Manuel Courthouse in Downtown Oakland.
