Robbery Turns Into Homicide in Concord

A 27-year-old man died after being attacked during an apparent  robbery attempt at a Concord park on Sunday night, police said today.
    Police have arrested two suspects in the attack, which occurred at  about 10 p.m. at Hillcrest Park, near Olivera Road and Grant Street.

    Police said the victim was with a group of people at the park when  two male suspects approached them and tried to rob them of their car and  belongings.     During the confrontation, the suspects attacked the victim, who  suffered injuries to his upper torso. He was taken to John Muir Medical  Center in Concord, where he died.
    Police searched the area and found the two suspects several blocks  from the park. They were identified as the attackers and were taken into  custody.
    The suspects, an adult and a juvenile, were booked on charges of  attempted carjacking, attempted robbery and carjacking, police said.
    Anyone with information about the case is asked to call major  crimes unit Detective Mike Kindorf at (925) 603-5857. Those wishing to remain  anonymous can call the Police Department's tip line at (925) 603-5836.

It was the second robbery that turned into a homicide over the weekend.

A man was shot to death Sunday afternoon in Oakland following an attempted robbery, Oakland police said.
    Officers responded to the shooting at 103rd Avenue and  International Boulevard around 12:55 p.m. and found the man suffering from a  life-threatening gunshot wound, Oakland police Officer Kevin McDonald said.
    He was transported to a hospital, where he later died from his  injuries, McDonald said.
    Police have not arrested any suspects and no further information  was immediately available.
