Two men accused of helping an 19-year-oldEast Palo Alto man already in custody track and attempt to murder a rival gangmember onHighway 101 in Belmont last fall are now incustody.Raymond LewisBradford,27,and MarvinJake Ware,25,appeared incourt for their initialarraignment on premedi-tated attempted murder,weapons and gang chargesbut put off pleas until July10 to meet up with EricValencia Vargas’existingcase. Vargas has been incustody since December,approximately two monthsafter the Sept. 30,20102shooting that sent two tothe hospital. He has plead-ed not guilty.The three defendants,allof East Palo Alto,belongto the Da Vill gang whiletheir target is a member of rival gang Midtown Taliban. The three alleged-ly learned where the victim’s mother lived andwatched the home until they saw him leave ina Dodge Charger driven by a friend. Theyallegedly followed the vehicle across the SanMateo Bridge and down Highway 101 beforepulling alongside and firing multiple times inthe Charger. The Charger swerved beforecrashing into a fence and stopping in adrainage ditch between Ralston Avenue andHolly Street. Two of the passengers,a 24-year-old man from Menlo Park and a 19-year-oldEast Palo Alto man,were struck by bullets buthave since recovered.“This was clearly a hit. They planned to exe-cute the victim,said District Attorney SteveWagstaffe.Vargas was arrested for the shooting Dec. 6in the juror parking lot outside the Hall of Justice in Redwood City. However,he wasactually in custody before that after allegedlyfighting gang task force officers Nov. 14 whenthey found him in possession of a loaded gun.He posted bail but was rearrested two weekslater after forensics linked his Glock to theSept. 30 highway shooting.Authorities tracked Bradford and Ware fromVargas’cellphone but didn’t need to go far tofind them for arrest,either — both men were incustody at the county jail awaiting prosecutionon other pending criminal charges.Bradford is charged with attempted robberyin a Middlefield Road jewelry store heist thatended with the clerk pulling out a shotgun. Healso has two prior criminal strikes from outsideSan Mateo County which leaves him facing atleast 50 years to life in prison if convicted.Ware,a second-strike defendant for felonyassault with a firearm,has an Aug. 19 trialpending for illegal possession of a firearm andammunition by a gangmember and felon.
