Omari Allen is a suspected member of "200 block Young Hawgz," arraigned on counts of attempted murder

18:13 |

Omari Allen was arraigned on counts of attempted murder, assault on a peace officer and shooting at an occupied vehicle, with firearm and gang-related allegations that carry extra penalties, said Chief Deputy District Attorney Kathryn Mitchell. Allen returns to court Wednesday to enter a plea. His bail is set at $5 million. The shooting occurred on the night of Feb. 20 in Marin City, when a sheriff's deputy was sitting in his car in the 100 block of Drake Avenue. Sheriff's officials said a single round was fired at the car from a handgun and became lodged in a pillar on the driver's side of the car. The deputy was not injured. Allen was identified as a suspect through a single tip that came via the Crime Stoppers phone line for anonymous tips, sheriff's Sgt. Debra Barry said Tuesday. Investigators arrested Allen early Saturday morning during a raid at his apartment in the public housing complex. A gun was recovered during the arrest, and investigators are testing it to see if it can be linked to the shot on the deputy's car. The sheriff's department is also investigating whether Allen can be connected to a series of some 30 robberies in Marin City over the past year, many involving guns and targeting bus commuters near the transit center. The sheriff's office said Allen is a suspected member of
the "200 block Young Hawgz," a reputed criminal street gang in the public housing area along Drake Avenue. In December, two other alleged Hawgz pleaded guilty to a gang-related assault on a family visiting Marin City's annual Labor Day festival.
In a report last year, the Marin County Civil Grand Jury identified the Young Hawgz as a gang with about 35 members in Marin City
