An Oakland man was arrested for the attempted murder of a man outside of the San Leandro Walmart during the early morning hours of Black Friday.
The victim was leaving the store with his family when a group of at least four people in the parking lot demanded his purchases. A struggle ensued and the victim, a man in his 20s, was shot once. He suffered major injuries but is in stable condition at an East Bay hospital. He received emergency surgery and is expected to survive, according to police.
Most of the suspects escaped the scene in a vehicle, however the victim’s family and friends detained one man by holding him down until officers arrived.
The captured suspect, Tony Phillips, 20, was arrested on suspicion of attempted homicide and attempted robbery. He is being held without bail at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin. His arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday at the Hayward Hall of Justice.
