OAKLAND — A Hayward resident has been arrested and charged with murdering two brothers who were shot and killed outside of an Oakland apartment building last September.
Sam Veimau, 25, was charged with murdering brothers Suiti and Manase Mesui on Sept. 26, as well as committing a residential burglary that same day. Veimau turned himself into Oakland police on Monday, according to court records.
Police said in court records that Veimau was identified as a suspect through “eyewitness statement and electronic information.” They have not released a suspected motive but say Veimau knew at least one of the victims.
