Virginia man shot, killed in Oakland robbery after leaving dentist's office
OAKLAND — Police on Monday arrested the second of two suspects they said robbed and killed a Virginia man July 18.
Police believe the gunman was George Huggins, 24, of Oakland. He was arrested around 2:45 p.m. Monday in the 2100 block of Curtis Street in Oakland.
Killed in the shooting was Jinghong Kang, a 45-year-old computer engineer whose plane had landed at Oakland International Airport just a few hours before the shooting. Kang flew out to interview for a job with Google in Mountain View.
Kang had just finished getting a teeth cleaning from a dentist friend around 11:30 p.m. when he was robbed and shot by two people near his parked car in the 1900 block of Webster Street.
On Saturday, police arrested Althea Housley, 33, of Oakland, who they said is Huggins' girlfriend and the second suspect. Housley already has made admissions of her involvement in the crime, police said.
She was arrested after someone recognized her from photos released in a television news broadcast. Housley told police they took $10 from Kang.
Police said they had been looking for Huggins since they arrested Housley but did not catch him until someone called them to the scene of the arrest, where that person was restraining Huggins.
The couple were held on suspicion of a similar robbery-shooting that happened June 21 in the 1700 block of Telegraph Avenue. A man and a woman, both 26, were sitting in a parked car around early in the
morning when the man was robbed of his car keys and shot, police said.
Sgt. Mike Gantt said Housley told investigators that the victims were targeted because they didn't seem to be paying attention and that Huggins needed money.
The suspects were arrested on suspicion of homicide, robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.
