OAKLAND -- Two Oakland homicide suspects were arrested Monday by federal authorities in Modesto and Stockton, according to a U.S. Marshals task force.

Both were arrested without incident and returned to Oakland, authorities said.

The first suspect, a 17-year-old boy whose name was not released by the U.S. Marshals on Tuesday, was arrested in Modesto by a team of federal, state, and local officers after surveillance teams saw him go into a house of a known associate.

The teen was wanted for the fatal shooting of Marcellus Perry, 18, of Oakland that occurred during a Feb. 20 gun battle near the intersection of Bancroft and 77th avenues, authorities said.

After the shootout, Perry was scooped up by his associates but later dumped more than a mile away as he was bleeding and clinging to life, police said. He later died.

Also Monday, federal authorities in Stockton arrested Mychal Wilson, 24, on suspicion of murder for the March 28 drive-by killing of Shamarr D. Owens, 27, of Emeryville outside a North Oakland liquor store. Another man was wounded in that shooting, which occurred in the 900 block of 43rd Street. Federal authorities made the arrests with the cooperation of Oakland police.
