1 min read

Detectives with the Emeryville Police Department were informed yesterday that one of the victims from last Monday’s double-shooting has died. The homicide is considered Emeryville’s second of the year after the I-80 standoff of a murder suspect back in September.

19-year-old Eondre Bolton of Richmond passed away at a local hospital on Sunday, December 10, 2017. Bolton was one of the subjects involved in the shooting which occurred on December 4, 2017 in the Target parking lot. The second victim, who has not been identified, remains in a local hospital and was last listed as in critical condition.


Cameron Smith, 22, of Oakland has been charged with a total of eight counts including two counts of attempted murder that will likely be upgraded to murder. Smith is being held at Santa Rita Jail and scheduled to be arraigned at the Rene C. Davidson County Courthouse in Oakland on December 18th.

According to The East Bay Times, the meeting was coordinated and Bolton and the other victim attempted to steal a large amount of Marijuana from Smith. Detectives are still investigating the incident.

If anyone has any information regarding this incident, please contact the Emeryville Police Department at (510) 596-3700.
