Oakland man guilty of killing 2 to impress gang


03:27 |

Oakland man has been convicted of murdering two people outside a public housing complex in what prosecutors called an attempt to impress fellow gang members. Nicholas Harris, 19, was found guilty by an Alameda County jury Tuesday of murdering Nario Jackson, 18, of Oakland and Edward Hampton, 17, of Hayward on Nov. 6, 2010. He faces 100 years to life in prison when he is sentenced in September by Superior Court Judge Morris Jacobson. Jackson and Hampton were shot numerous times in a car on the 1000 block of Eighth Street in West Oakland outside the Acorn public housing complex. Harris shot them to prove himself to fellow gang members, authorities said. His ex-girlfriend provided text messages implicating him in the slayings, said Deputy District Attorney Charles Wilson. Harris was a juvenile at the time of the slayings but was prosecuted as an adult. Jackson's slaying was the first of two tragedies to affect his family. In August, his brother, Najon Jackson, 16, was shot and killed in East Oakland. No arrests have been made in that case.
