Oakland police Saturday released images of the suspect and getaway car in the fatal May shooting of Artgel “Jun” Anabo, Jr. in a plea for help in identifying and locating the killer.
Anabo, co-owner of the Filipino restaurant Lucky Three Seven, was fatally shot just before 9:45 p.m. May 18 in the 2800 block of Brookdale Avenue in East Oakland while walking to his car with his son.
In a video update on the unsolved homicide, Oakland police released photos of a black 2009 Ford Escape with a license plate number 8ZTF474 believed to be connected with the shooting. The video also contained a grainy image of what police said was the killer.
Police asked that anyone with information contact their homicide section at (510) 238-3821 or their tip line at (510) 238-7950. The Oakland Police Department and CrimeStoppers of Oakland are offering a reward for an arrest in this case.
Friends said Anabo was closing up the restaurant and starting to do preparations for it just before the shooting. Oakland police officers found Anabo shot on the same block as the restaurant, and an ambulance took him to a hospital, where he died. Friends said Anabo has an 11-year-old son and that he had been looking forward to his 40th birthday on May 28.
