CHP said both involved vehicles immediately fled the scene. Detectives assigned to the CHP’s Golden Gate Division assumed lead on the investigation and identified two vehicles they believe to be involved in this homicide investigation. 

As seen in the released photograph, one vehicle is believed to be a 2007-2010 grey Infiniti sedan. The other vehicle appears to be a grey Nissan sedan. 

The Oakland Chinatown Chamber of Commerce announced a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction less than a week after the deadly shooting . The money comes from the Crimes Against Asians Reward Fund (CAARF), created through a partnership between Burma Love and Superstar restaurants, the San Francisco Police Officers Association, and the Oakland Chinatown Chamber of Commerce.  

Jasper’s mother Cherry An issued her own heartfelt plea for justice days after the shooting.

“I want to call on the public to help me find the killers,” said An. “I don’t want such a tragedy to happen to another person again.”

The deadly shooting had some community leaders demanding more police patrols and the introduction of freeway cameras.

The shooting remains an active investigation. Any assistance from the public in gathering the details surrounding the shooting and information regarding the suspect vehicles would be appreciated, CHP said. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the CHP Investigation Tipline at (707) 917-4491.
