San Leandro Police Say Antioch Couple Conspire to Murder 11-Month Old Baby


The San Leandro Police Department arrested an Antioch man and woman for conspiring to kill the man’s 11th month old son according to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office.

Here is the release from the San Leandro Police Dept.

The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office has filed charges against an Antioch man and woman for conspiring to kill the man’s 11-month-old son.

On Monday, April 17th, 2017 at 2:30 pm, San Leandro Police Officers responded to a shooting that occurred inside of the McDonald’s restaurant located inside the Washington Plaza shopping center.

When officers arrived, they found a bullet hole in the front glass window of the restaurant. A woman and her 11-month-old baby were sitting in a booth and appeared to have been targeted.

“The detectives that investigated this case say that it was a miracle that no one was hit,” said Lt. Isaac Benabou.

Police began interviewing witnesses and searching for surveillance video. Detectives viewed McDonald’s video which showed the suspect walk towards the table where the woman and infant were sitting and shot at them from close range. The suspect immediately ran out of the main entrance and was gone before police arrived.

Investigators have learned that the woman and her baby were at the McDonald’s restaurant to meet with the infant’s father, 29 yr. old Marcel Brooks of Antioch. Brooks never arrived and information about him caused police to explore whether or not he was involved in the violent attack.

Detectives began investigating this case, working through the night. They located Brooks and 27 yr. old Adanna Ibe at a Sacramento Motel the following morning. Investigators arrested Brooks and Ibe on suspicion of attempted murder of Brook’s 11-month-old son.

Brooks and Ibe were returned to the San Leandro Police Department where they were interviewed by detectives. They have since concluded that Brooks and Ibe conspired to shoot and kill Brooks’ son, who was the intended target during the Monday afternoon shooting.

Police are confident that this was not a random act of violence and they have arrested the people responsible for this heinous act.

Investigators met with the Alameda County District Attorney today, who filed charges against the pair including attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder. Both suspects appeared in court this afternoon at the Hayward Hall of Justice and will be held without bail at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin. They are expected to appear in court sometime next week.

  1. Gotta love Antioch and it’s ghetto ways.

    And who said section 8 improves property values and the quality of life of good hard working people that don’t conspire to kill children?

    This is a new win for Antioch. Pittsburg is going to have a hard time beating this one. Lmao

    • Where in the article does it state that these 2 people are section 8 recipients? Or are you just being your usual fear-mongering, poor-folk-scapegoating self?

      • And you’re just being your usual scared hiding behind the scene person with name like You.

        Oh let me grant you the benefit of the doubt by saying these upstanding child murderers are fine citizens of Antioch. The female is a doctor and the male is actually Eric Holder.

        The ghetto hood rats in this city sure are aplenty.

        • It’s obvious that these two people aren’t upstanding citizens of this society–what was being pointed out is that there was nothing stated about section 8 in this article. These two could be getting no aid for all you know, who cares? Your constant soapbox raving against section 8 is nothing more than the hot air ramblings of a bitter old man. Our societal issues are a whole lot more complex than government handouts. Branch out in your thinking a little, buddy.

          • You hit it on the head. He cry’s like a school girl about Antioch every chance he gets.

          • You’re a moron plain and simple.

            Glad I made your day when I talk about the garbage section 8 ruining this town.

            I’ve got 4 people kicked off the program so far and my score keeps adding up.

            Be careful mr anonymous you could be next to get booted off.


  2. All the opportunities in life being granted with health and well-being; and these 2 fools want to murder a child. Eugenics should be enforced. Over 60,000 foster kids in California alone, yet we have animals like this still roaming. Yes animals, we are bipedal primates get over it.

  3. @simonpure

    Listen simon… I’ve slapped you around a couple of times before.
    Seems like you haven’t learned your lesson and yearning for another backhand across your face.

    I’d quit your yammering before I consider using my energy to put you back in your place. Next time stick to flipping your burgers when grown people are talking.

  4. Any other criminal supported out there that want to take the side of these two ghetto hood rats?

    Here’s a little something for you: after work I get home and relax knowing I made a positive contribution to society. On my spare time I like to report your criminal behavior to the police and section 8 housing. At the end of the day you will lose either behind behind bars or getting your panties in a bunch by going to this or another news site for Antioch and you will still see me ranting and talking all my mess about you criminal bastards and your ghetto ways.

    I will not stop.

    Toodles you uneducated piece of walking garbage. Do yourselves a favor and just turn yourself in. You know you’re guilty and will always be guilty.

    BTW get a job instead of being in section 8 from cradle to the grave.

  5. I would love to know who you really are RJB. Are you a leftover remenant from the good old days when Antioch was racist enough to have laws against POC owning property? Probably. Which makes you one sad old man. (Based on your coldness, it’s obvious what sex you are) It must feel nice up on your high horse since that is where all your comments come from. I laugh at your one man crusade to insult the internet everyday you sad little troll. PS. My family is from here, I have had a job since the day I turned 18 and have not stopped since. I actually feel like it is people like you who are the problem in this town. If you are so unhappy here, move. Oh wait, if you are still here, you probably can’t afford to. I guess that’s why you are so angry at the poor. You are one and can’t handle it.
