Authorities are searching for a San Pablo man in connection with a fatal shooting in Rodeo in April.

Angelo Ramirez, 30, is wanted on suspicion of fatally shooting Olajawon Walker, 24, of San Pablo, in the 1000 block of Mariposa Avenue at about 7:50 p.m. on April 24, according to the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriffs deputies arrived at the scene to find Walker on the street suffering from a gunshot wound. Walker was pronounced dead at the scene.

Ramirez fled the area after the murder but detectives later identified him as the suspect, the sheriff’s office said. The case was presented to the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office which charged him with murder, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

“He is currently being sought by the Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshals Service,” the sheriff’s office said. “It is believed Ramirez may be receiving assistance in avoiding apprehension. Anyone associated with harboring Ramirez may be arrested for being an accessory to murder after the fact.”

Ramirez is considered armed and dangerous and the sheriff’s office asks those who see him to call 911 immediately.

Anyone with any information on this case is asked to contact Sheriff’s Office Dispatch at (925) 646-2441 or the Investigation Division at (925) 313-2600. For any tips, email: [email protected] or call (866) 846-3592 to leave an anonymous voice message.
