A man suspected of killing a mother and son in Oakland on Saturday afternoon was tracked to a room in Stockton on Tuesday, but killed himself while law enforcement officers were closing in on him, police said.

Leonard Williams, 55, of Oakland, was determined to be a suspect in the fatal shooting of 48-year-old Latrelle Parker and her son, 22-year-old Ezra Glenn, at about 2:45 p.m. Saturday on the 3300 block of MacArthur Boulevard, according to Oakland police.

Investigators tracked Williams to a room on the 1700 block of West Fremont Street in Stockton at about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to police.
