The San Joaquin County District Attorney’s Office announced four new murder charges on Tuesday for alleged serial shooter Wesley Brownlee, including a new case out of Alameda County. 

Brownlee is being charged for the alleged murder of Juan Alexander Vasquez, out of Alameda County, and a new Alameda County victim, Mervin Harmon. Additionally, the DA is charging Wesley for allegedly murdering Paul Yaw and Salvador Debudey, Jr., and the attempted murder of Natasha LaTour, all out of San Joaquin County. 

The Harmon case is new, but Wesley had previously been suspected of the four other crimes yet hadn’t been charged. 

The DA’s Office has not yet specifically commented on the new charges, but District Attorney Tori Verber Salazar promised “justice for these victims.” 

Brownlee was arrested in October on suspicion of the shooting deaths of six people. He has already been charged for the deaths of Jonathan Rodriguez, 21, Juan Carlos Carranza-Cruz, 52, and Lawrence Lopez, 54. 

Victim LaTour is the only known survivor of the serial shootings. 

This is a developing story.
