MARTINEZ, Calif. - Two men arrested in connection with the Halloween night shooting in Orinda are out of jail, meaning that no one is in custody despite a total of seven arrests following the deaths of five party goers.
Fredrick Johnson, 29, of Vallejo was released on $75,000 bond on Wednesday, according to online records.
And on Thursday evening, Domico Michael Dones, 29, posted bond and also was released.
Both were arrested on last Friday. and were originally booked into Contra Costa County jail in Martinez on suspicion of murder and conspiracy, even though prosecutors did not charge them with those crimes.
Instead, the District Attorney charged Johnson and Dones with being felons in possession of firearms and ammunition.
Authorities also acknowledged that the guns found with the men were not used in connection with the killing of five young people at a party in an Orinda mansion on the night of Oct. 31. Authorities have not said how the two men are potentially linked to the Halloween night mass killing or if they were even at the party that night.
Johnson was also charged with an acount of child endangerment. Dones has pleaded not guilty.
Earlier this month, the Contra Costa County District Attorney declined to charge five other suspects who were arrested following the shooting, claiming prosecutors ddin't have sufficient evidence to charge them with murder.
Those killed were: 22-year-old Tiyon Farley of Antioch; 24-year-old Omar Taylor of Pittsburg; 23-year-old Ramon Hill Jr. of San Francisco and Oakland; 29-year-old Javin County of Sausalito and Richmond; and 19-year-old Oshiana Tompkins of Vallejo and Hercules.
Investigators haven't released a motive in the shooting but sources say rival groups from Marin and San Francisco reignited a dispute at the Halloween party.
