Have you seen these men? OPD needs your help

on May 11, 2011

The Oakland Police Department is looking for help finding two men who may have information about a 2009 murder case. The victim was  59-year-old Bounhom Manyvong, who was shot during his shift as a security guard at Auto Zone on 10111 International Blvd in Oakland.

The men, whom OPD says are “people of interest,” are described as thin, African American, and in their twenties. One is approximately six feet tall, and was seen wearing a green fur-lined jacket, white t-shirt, and blue jeans on the day of the shooting, December 19, 2009. The other man is about 5’8″, and was seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black pants that day.

A reward of up to $15,000 is offered by OPD and the Crime Stoppers of Oakland for information that helps solve the case. If you have information about the men, call Oakland Homicide Investigators at 510-238-7959 or email the Division at
