Marcel Perry, 20, is charged with murder and the sentencing enhancement clause that the killing was gang-related in the slaying of Vincent ScottMarcel Perry, suspected of being a member of the Acorn drug gang in West Oakland is scheduled to enter a plea May 4 to charges he killed a 16-year-old rival with an assault rifle in November, authorities said Friday.Sgt. Gus Galindo said Friday that Perry, who has been in custody on an unrelated gun charge since Jan. 6, has admitted his involvement in the killing.Scott, a Fairfield resident who grew up in West Oakland, was shot Nov. 20, while driving in the 3100 block of San Pablo Avenue. The car then crashed into a building. Scott died of his wounds Nov. 22.Galindo said Perry claimed to be an associate of the Acorn gang but officers with the police gang unit say he is a member.Galindo said police have information that Scott was associated with the Ghost Town gang that claims turf in another part of West Oakland. He said the killing was another deadly incident in a long-standing, violence-filled rivalry between the gangs.In June, Oakland police conducted massive raids in West Oakland and other cities that led to the arrest and charging of more than 50 people suspected to be Acorn members. Perry was not arrested in those raids.Galindo said that after Scott was killed, police got information from people familiar with the rivalry and physical evidence — he
would not say what — that led to Perry being considered a possible suspect.
Galindo and his partner, Sgt. John Parkinson, built their case against Perry until they were ready to interview him April 7. He was brought from Santa Rita Jail, where he was being held on a February gun charge to police headquarters, where he was interviewed and made his incriminating admissions, Galindo said.Galindo said the assault rifle used to kill Scott has not been recovered.Perry is now being held without bail at Santa Rita Jail
