California teen surrenders to Oakland police after the shooting death of his sister

Police in California say a 14-year-old boy wanted in connection with the shooting death of his older sister has turned himself in.

Oakland police spokeswoman Officer Johnna Watson said Wednesday the teen was accompanied by several family members, including his father, when he surrendered at Oakland Police Department headquarters.

Police say he is suspected of fatally shooting his 17-year-old sister, who is the mother of a toddler, on Jan. 23 inside an apartment building in the Chinatown neighborhood of Oakland.

The boy's father had publicly pleaded with the teen, who was considered armed and dangerous, to surrender.
