Marin County sheriff's officials have identified a suspect they are seeking in the slaying of two men during a street fight in Marin City earlier this month.

Charles Welch, 37, is suspected of fatally shooting Jacari Lloyd Devon Cook, 29, and Carl Lee Breaux, 60, both of Marin City, on Feb. 7.

Welch has ties to Marin City, Novato, San Francisco and Santa Rosa. He has no known vehicles and should be considered armed and dangerous, sheriff's Lt. Jamie Scardina said.

Welch is black, 6 feet 1 inch tall, weighs 230 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes, Scardina said.

Cook and Breaux responded to a domestic violence incident against a woman related to Breaux at 99 Cole Drive around 10 a.m., Scardina said. The fight initially involved bats or sticks but shots were then fired.

The domestic violence suspect, Lamarco Mitchell, 42, of Marin City, was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor battery on a cohabitant or former spouse and violating his post-release supervision.

Mitchell is scheduled to appear in Marin County Superior Court on Friday morning.

Anyone with information about Welch is asked to call the Marin County Sheriff's Office at (415) 473-7265.
