RICHMOND -- Police have recommended a suspect in a fatal shooting fueled by a family dispute be charged with first-degree murder, officials said Thursday.
Ismael Carrillo, 33, of Richmond, is accused of shooting and killing Javier Campos, 38, also of Richmond, about 8:30 p.m. Saturday in the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant at 23rd Street and Barrett Avenue, police said.
Police have said an ongoing family dispute led to the shooting, but Campos and Carrillo were not related by blood, according to Richmond police Det. Nicole Abetkov. She would not elaborate on the link between the two men.
Police have recommended to the Contra Costa District Attorney's Office that Carrillo be charged with first-degree murder with an enhancement for the use of a firearm, Abetkov said. A call to the district attorney's office was not immediately returned.
Carrillo is being held at County Jail in Martinez on $1 million bail. Campos' death was Richmond's 13th homicide of 2012.
