Antioch resident Jason Walizada was arrested for allegedly shooting and killing Ke’Marion Tucker, Oakley Police Chief Paul Beard said. Walizada was arrested Wednesday afternoon around 4:30 p.m. in the 2600 block of Orange Way in Antioch.
He was booked into the Main Detention Facility in Martinez with a $1.15 million bail.
The U.S. Marshals assisted in Walizada's arrest.
Official charges have not been against Walizada, but authorities are saying he is connected.
"This case has absolutely shattered the lives of family, friends and loved ones of the victims in this case, especially the deceased child… Our work is not done, but I appreciate my investigators for all of the diligent work they have put in so far to identify a responsible in this case and to get him into custody," Beard said in part.
Before the shooting, Oakley police arrived at the scene around 30 minutes in response to noise complaints. Officers offered to break up the party but the host declined. Sometime later, around 20 to 30 uninvited guests showed up and broke through the side gate to enter the home when "all hell broke loose."

It's unclear the circumstances that led to the fatal incident.
