OAKLAND -- After sending out a public call for information, investigators have identified three of the four women who may have been at a Halloween party two years ago when a 32-year-old Fremont man was shot to death, police said.

Police are still looking to identify one of the women but did not release any additional information about the case Wednesday.

Darian Stone, an Army reservist and security guard, was killed about 2:45 a.m. on Nov. 1, 2011 in the 500 block of El Paseo Drive in the Sobrante Park area following a confrontation, police said. The father of three was in Oakland celebrating Halloween. The women had left the party before police arrived. The shooter has not been identified or arrested.

Police believe Stone met the women in a downtown club before the party and photographed the four women with his cell phone before he was killed. Police are interviewing the women as possible witnesses to the shooting.

Police released the photographs on Tuesday but for the safety of the women declined to give more information about them on Wednesday.

Oakland Police and Crime Stoppers of Oakland are offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to an arrest in this case. Anyone with information is asked to contact major crimes unit Investigator Doug Keely at 510-238-7959 or 510-238-3326 or Crime Stoppers of Oakland at 510-777-8672 or 510-777-2805.
