MARTINEZ -- A 19-year-old San Francisco man has been ordered to trial on murder and attempted murder charges in connection with an Antioch shooting that prosecutors say was over missing gold grill dental jewelry.
Prosecutors say Armoun Page killed 24-year-old Brentwood resident Khalid Bragg and wounded Bragg's brother, Taaron Bragg, 20, of Suisun City, after becoming enraged over the missing grill at a mutual acquaintance's home Sept. 28.
Numerous people, including young children unrelated to the victims, witnessed the shooting in which Khalid Bragg used his own body to shield his younger brother, according to Contra Costa County deputy district attorney Jill Henderson.
Page was held to answer on the felony charges at a short preliminary hearing Monday. He remains in County Jail in lieu of $4.5 million bail.
