Two video grabs released by the Oakland Police Department Wednesday show the two men the department wants to speak to.
The footage, captured by surveillance cameras, shows the two suspects in the killing of 45-year-old Jinghong Kang in the 1900 block of Webster Street at about 11:30 p.m. Sunday.
Kang was in town for a job interview at Google and had come to Oakland Sunday night to have his teeth cleaned by a female friend who works as a dental hygienist.
Kang and his friend were walking back to his rental car from the dental office so she could help him program directions into his GPS device when two men approached them and demanded money, Thomason said.
Both victims were pushed to the ground and the woman heard gunshots, Thomason said. The men then fled without taking anything, and the woman realized Kang had been shot. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call the Police Department's homicide section at 510-238-3821.
