At a press conference in Oakland Tuesday, the Department of Justice announced federal charges against the Ben Lomond shooter for his involvement in a fatal shooting in Oakland.

According to David L. Anderson, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of California, Steven Carrillo was the shooter who killed a federal security guard and injured another at the federal building in Oakland.

Carrillo was arrested in Ben Lomond after he killed a Santa Cruz County deputy and injured two more law enforcement officers.

Now, Carrillo is being charged with murder and attempted murder by the Department of Justice. He was already charged with 19 charges, including murder and attempted murder, by the Santa Cruz County District Attorney.

According to Anderson, Carrillo is connected to an extremist group called the "boogaloos". Carrillo was found with a patch that resembled the patch of the organization and wrote boogaloo phrases in blood before being arrested in Ben Lomond.
