Richmond police identify double homicide victims
on September 22, 2014
The two men shot and killed in the Iron Triangle neighborhood on Saturday have been identified by the Richmond Police Department as Dayton Dailey, 23, and Clarence Wallace, 20, according to the Contra Costa Times.
Police responded to a ShotSpotter alert at around 5:30 p.m. and found Dailey at 4th Street and Bissell Avenue. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Wallace was taken by unknown persons to Kaiser Richmond hospital and was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.
The double homicide comes two days after a flurry of gunfire struck an apartment complex and parked cars in the 400 block of Bissell Ave., the same area where Dailey and Wallace were shot. Police have not said whether the two shootings are related.
Dailey and Wallace are the 11th and 12th homicide victims in Richmond in 2014. The police have no suspects and no apparent motive for the killings, according to the Contra Costa Times.
