Coroner's office identifies pair killed in apartment brawl

The Marin County coroner's office on Monday identified two people killed in Marin City where a brawl broke out at an apartment complex.

The sheriff's office said dispatchers received 911 calls around 10 a.m. on Sunday about an altercation involving bats or sticks at the public housing apartments at 99 Cole Drive.

Investigators said that by the time the first deputies arrived, the fight had escalated. Callers told dispatchers that shots were fired and two men were found dead outside the complex.

On Monday morning, coroner's officials identified the deceased victims as Jacari Lloyd Devon Cook, 29, and 60-year-old Carl Lee Breaux.

Chief Deputy Coroner Darrell Harris said autopsies on the pair, both Marin City residents, are scheduled for Tuesday.
A third man suffered injuries and was hospitalized, Marin County sheriff's Lt. Doug Pittman said.

Investigators said it appeared all the people involved knew each other.

"They are people who are known to us and known to other people in the community. That's why we know this is most likely more of an isolated event and no other threat to the community beyond those who were involved at this point," Pittman said.

There is no word of any arrests at this point.
