LIVERMORE, Calif. (KGO) -- Police have identified one of two suspects in a fatal shooting at the Livermore Arcade Shopping Center on First Street Saturday night.

Police tell ABC7 News that two adult males in their 20s were shot inside of a vehicle in the parking lot of the busy shopping center anchored by a Safeway grocery store. One of the victims has died and the other went into surgery.

The suspect has been identified as 18-year-old Oakland resident Jason Alexander Brown. Police have have obtained a no bail warrant for his arrest on one count of murder and another count of attempted murder.

Detectives obtained a search warrant for Brown's home but found he was not at home. Police say he is still at large and considered armed and dangerous.

The identity of the second suspect is still unknown. Police say the two were armed with an assault rifle.

The driver, who has not been identified, was deceased at the scene. The front passenger suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was transported to an area hospital. The front passenger has also not been identified and the passenger's condition is unknown.

Witnesses at the scene provided a possible suspect and suspect vehicle description.

The vehicle the suspects drove off in a black 2006 BMW 325i with a California license plate number 5PLR682. The car has two red racing stripes on the hood.

The suspects fled out the parking lot onto Railroad Avenue. CHP located the vehicle on I-580 and initiated a pursuit, but lost the vehicle in Oakland.

"These types of incidents don't happen in Livermore. It sounds like these two were the intended target," a detective said.
