OAKLAND -- The man shot and killed Thursday near the border of the Occupy Oakland encampment near City Hall was identified Sunday as Kayode O. Foster, a 25-year-old Oakland man.

Police said Foster had been spending time at the camp for a few days before he was shot, and had been telling people his name was Alex. Police are still not sure of a motive but said he had a dispute with somebody else who was hanging out at the camp.

Investigators said Foster was attacked and beaten before he was shot. Police released descriptions of two suspects Friday. Both are African-American. The man suspected of pulling the trigger is believed to be 20 to 25 years old, 5 feet 9 inches to 5 feet 11 inches, 150 pounds and with short hair. The other suspect is in his 20s to 30s, 5 feet 9 inches to 5 feet 11 inches, 250 pounds, with long dreadlocks that may have red tips, possibly a tattoo on the back of his neck and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.

Police are offering up to $10,000 in reward for information that leads to a suspect's arrest. Anyone with information can call police at 510-238-3529.
