OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Alameda County prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty for a man accused of fatally shooting an 8-year-old Oakland girl during a sleepover.

Deputy District Attorney John Brouhard told a judge on Thursday that prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty against Darnell Williams of Oakland in the shooting death of Alaysha Carradine in July.

The 23-year-old Williams has been charged with murder and three counts of attempted murder for allegedly shooting the girl after she answered the front door at her friend’s apartment during a sleepover in Oakland.

Another suspect, 27-year-old Joe Carroll, also of Oakland, faces similar charges.

Williams also faces two special circumstances that make him eligible for the death penalty -committing multiple murders and lying in wait.

He is due back in court on June 11.
