Berkeley resident Amed Arabzai, 20, and Richmond resident Grayson Gordon, 21, received charges on May 21 after investigations into two shootings that occurred in April, according to a Nixle alert sent Friday.

According to the Nixle alert, Arabzai was taken into custody during a warrant search on the 1300 block of 66th Street in Berkeley. Gordon was arrested on the 600 block of Carlson Boulevard in Richmond.

Detectives found a .40 caliber pistol with an altered serial number, 30 pounds of marijuana and about $15,000 in cash in Arabzai’s residence, and a second firearm in Gordon’s residence, according to the alert.

The alert also states that the motives for the shootings appear to have been gang-related.

Arabzai was charged on suspicion of possession for sale of marijuana and alteration, removal or obliteration of a firearm identification number, according to the Nixle alert. Gordon was charged on suspicion of shooting at an inhabited dwelling, assault with a semiautomatic firearm, use and carry of a loaded and concealed firearm in public, carrying an unregistered firearm and an enhancement for the use of the firearm while attempting to commit a felony.

Gordon remains in custody at the Alameda County jail, while Arabzai was released “on his own recognizance,” according to the alert.
