The shooter in the Oakland multiple LEO murder case.

Timeline: Lovelle Mixon's parole record
By Andrew Blankstein
March 24, 2009
In October 2007, Lovelle Mixon was released on parole after serving five years of a six-year sentence for assault with a firearm. Within months the 26-year-old Oakland resident was in trouble again, authorities said.

In February, Mixon was placed on a parole hold as a possible suspect in a homicide in Alameda County, according to Scott Kernan, undersecretary of operations for the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Prosecutors declined to file charges in that case, saying there was not sufficient evidence, but Mixon was detained on various parole violations and sent back to prison for nine months, Kernan said.

Here is a look at Mixon's interactions with the parole department since his Nov. 1 release from the California Correctional Center in Susanville, as reported by the department :

Nov. 3: Mixon reports to his parole agent for an initial interview and undergoes his first mandatory drug test.

Nov. 5: Mixon reports to Parole and Community Team, a state program that offers a broad range of services to parolees. The agency provides job placement, drug treatment and other services. During the visit, he met with his parole agent and again was tested for drugs.

Nov. 7: Mixon's parole agent makes an initial residential visit, meeting with Mixon at his mother's home in Oakland. The agent also met with relatives of Mixon to evaluate his living conditions and who he was interacting with while on parole. During the visit, Mixon is referred by the agent to America Work, an employment service.

Dec. 17: Mixon's parole agent makes a residential visit, also meeting with one of Mixon's cousins as part of their continuing effort to assess his family situation.

Dec. 19: Mixon reports to the parole office and takes a drug test.

Jan. 6: Mixon reports to the parole office and takes a drug test.

Jan. 23: Mixon's parole agent makes a residential visit and refers Mixon to another employment service, Project Choice Employment.

Feb. 6: Mixon reports to the parole office and takes a drug test.

Feb. 18: Mixon's parole agent makes a residential visit but cannot locate him.

Feb. 24: Mixon's parole agent makes another residential visit but Mixon cannot be located. The agent talks with his mother.

Feb. 26: After another residential visit, the agent still cannot locate Mixon.

Feb. 27: The parole agent prepares a parolee-at-large report and a warrant is issued for Mixon's arrest. The state Board of Parole Hearings suspends Mixon's parole effective Feb. 19, the day after his parole officer first failed to find him. The case is referred to the corrections department's Fugitive Apprehension Team.

March 6: The Fugitive Apprehension Team and members of the Oakland Police Department visit three Oakland addresses, including Mixon's mother's home, his address of record. The following week, they distribute a bulletin to the Oakland Police Department. The case is also referred to the U.S. Marshals Service to check on reports that Mixon might have been in the Auburn, Wash., area. They are unable to locate him.

March 21: Mixon is pulled over by Oakland motorcycle officers for a traffic violation shortly after 1 p.m. Authorities said he began shooting at the officers, killing Sgt. Mark Dunakin, 40, and fatally wounding Officer John Hege, 41. After trying to hide in a nearby apartment building where his sister lives, Mixon kills Oakland SWAT sergeants Ervin Romans, 43, and Daniel Sakai, 35, before he is shot and killed by police.

"But he was such a nice boy. Them po-leece didn't need to shoot him down like a dog in the street. It's just another example of how 'The Man' just wants to keep minorities down." </sarcasm>

Somewhere, I heard a report that he was wanted for the rape (statutory or otherwise) of one of his cousins.

That record listed is just his adult record. I'm sure that he's got a long juvenile record of increasingly violent crimes, since you don't normally go straight to ADW as a first offense after turning 21. There's got to be some petty theft, maybe a drug charge in there.

I also want to know how he came into the possession of firearms. He would obviously not pass a DROS check to buy a new gun, and Person-to-Person transfers are all supposed to go through an FFL and be DROS'ed. Do you think those firearms might have been stolen?

All I have left to say is that he was a career criminal whose career was cut short.

When SWAT made entry the scumbag was laying in the prone position in a closet and fired through the bedroom door and walls. basically just firing indescriminantly. The cops held their fire until they had a clear target, forground and background so as to not further endanger the scumbags family members. A concern the scumbag clearly did not share.

On the traffic stop, it's looking like he may of gotten out and approached the motor officers.

In the house, supposedly a family member said he wasn't in there and after they tried verbal challenges and flash bangs, still no answer so they went to clear.
