A suspect in the fatal shootings of two Oakland restaurant employees late Monday night is set to be arraigned Friday afternoon on murder and weapons charges.

Jamaine Duane Gurley, 21, is charged with two counts of murder in the deaths of Richmond residents Kenneth Bradley, 22, and Jose Santa Maria, 26, according to Alameda County prosecutors.

Bradley and Santa Maria were fatally shot at the Wingstop restaurant at 528 Lake Park Ave. around 11:45 p.m. on Monday, police said.

Police initially said the killings may have occurred during a robbery, but later concluded that was not the case based on surveillance footage and witness statements.

Gurley was taken into custody in West Oakland just before 8 a.m. Tuesday, police said.

In addition to the murder charges, he faces charges of carrying a concealed weapon and carrying a loaded weapon that he was not legally allowed to possess.

Police had previously said they were seeking a second suspect in the shooting, but Gurley is the only person who has been arrested so far.

He is scheduled to appear for arraignment in Alameda County Superior Court at 2 p.m., prosecutors said.
