East Palo Alto homicide fugitive is arrested

Warren Morrison Jr. held on $5 million warrant

A Stockton man wanted for the Oct. 25 homicide of an East Palo Alto resident was arrested without incident today, Nov. 13, East Palo Alto police have announced.

Warren Morrison Jr., 23, was taken into custody for the shooting death of Jarmal Magee, 31, an East Palo Alto resident, who was gunned down at approximately 9:30 p.m. Police responded to the 300 block of Wisteria Drive after receiving numerous 911 calls reporting multiple gunshots followed by someone screaming.

Officers found the wounded Magee, who was treated at the scene and transported to a local hospital, where he died. Police and the DA's office identified Morrison, who allegedly had an argument with Magee sometime prior to the shooting. There is no evidence that the incident was gang-related, police said. Police are still seeking witnesses.

Police considered him armed and dangerous and warned the public not to confront Morrison but to call law enforcement if they encountered him.

The Tracy Police Department located and arrested Morrison at a motel in Tracy, Commander Jeff Liu said in a statement. Morrison was booked into the San Joaquin County Jail.

Police have credited the community with helping to identify Morrison as the alleged shooter.
