Suspects in gang-related murder on Hwy 4 arrested

Two of four suspects in a shooting that killed one person and injured another on state Highway 4 in Pittsburg this May were arrested today in Antioch, according to police.

Marcus Gaines and Kevin Carter were arrested at a residence in the 1900 block of Johnson Drive today, but suspects Corey McCroey and Damario Pitteard remain at large.

The four suspects allegedly followed a man and woman driving west on Highway 4 and shot them near the Railroad Avenue overpass.

The vehicle the victims were traveling in crashed, and the female driver was partially ejected. Both victims were taken to a hospital. The woman was pronounced dead. She was later identified as 25-year-old Shanique Marie, of San Francisco.

The male victim was treated and released.

After a seven-month investigation, police say that all four suspects have gang associations in the San Francisco area.
