Teen confesses in journalist’s slaying
OAKLAND — A teenage handyman for a Black Muslim splinter group has confessed and will be charged with murder in the shooting death of an Oakland journalist who was investigating the group’s finances, the assistant police chief said yesterday.
Devaughndre Broussard, 19, was one of seven persons arrested in Friday’s raids on Your Black Muslim Bakery and nearby houses. He is expected to be charged this week in the death of Chauncey Bailey, an Oakland Post editor, Assistant Police Chief Howard Jordan said.
The raids on the bakery organization, founded nearly 40 years ago with a mission to empower Oakland’s poor, capped a yearlong investigation into a series of violent crimes that police said were connected to the group.
The group’s 21-year-old chief executive officer, Yusuf Bey IV, son of the bakery’s founder, also was arrested and held on a 2006 assault warrant accusing him of striking a bouncer with his BMW after being thrown out of a San Francisco strip club.
Sheriff’s deputy shot during traffic stop
HOLLYWOOD — A motorcyclist shot a plainclothes Broward County sheriff’s deputy who had pulled him over yesterday, authorities said. The officer was in critical condition.
The deputy, who was not identified, stopped the motorcyclist about 11:50 a.m., but the suspect fled on foot, then turned around and shot the deputy, authorities said.
The suspect was arrested moments later at a condominium, officials said. His name was not released.
Police would not give the reason for the traffic stop.
Nearly a dozen officers and rescue workers helped load the deputy onto a stretcher to be brought to Memorial Regional Hospital. He was wearing shorts and shoes, without a shirt.
Sheriff Ken Jenne was at the hospital with the deputy.
