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.

    The City of Richmond and the RPD should be held accountable and sued not only by the families of these two men but for the law abiding people living in the neighborhoods that were held under siege for over a week. Scared to let kids outside to play, afraid to come home after work. This apartment building was shot at/into at least 5 times in 1 week. After 1 of the 5 shootings 44 shell casings were left on the ground. You can’t tell me none of these casings had fingerprints on them. How is this possible no one was arrested? After the second shooting the police should have literally sat in front of this apartment building. Actually the apartment owner should be held accountable for some of this as well. Every couple of years this same apartment building is filled with horrible tenants that are possibly involved in activities that put the whole neighborhood in danger (don’t believe me check their Instagram pages, they aren’t ashamed and are foolish enough not to hide what they do). RPD are ineffective and the chief should be fired. What a disgrace !
