Suspects charged in home invasion, attempted murder of police officers

Alameda County to prosecute case involving East Palo Alto man

Two suspects in custody for a violent Fremont home invasion that led to a police pursuit into Menlo Park, complete with shots fired at officers, will be prosecuted by Alameda County, according to the District Attorney's Office. A third suspect remains at large.

Haloti Lauese, 22, of East Palo Alto, and 21-year-old Derrick Fracure -- also known as Shawn Oceola Thomas -- of Sunnyvale, were arrested after the April 29 pursuit. Investigators are still looking for 18-year-old Demetrius Crayton Jr., also known as "'Lil meme' or 'MeMe'."

Court records filed by the Alameda County District Attorney's Office stated that the three men went to an apartment in Fremont shortly before 5 p.m. on April 29. Reportedly armed with semiautomatic guns, they confronted three people inside, ransacked the residence, and pistol-whipped a victim when he pleaded to keep his cellphone, police said. The victims told investigators that they didn't know the suspects.
