He is described as a Black man in his 20s to 30s, with a thin build and short dreadlocks. He was wearing a distinctive vest with lettering and a star on the back.

Dave, a contract employee for a shipping company with offices in Oakland, had arrived on a ship at the Port of Oakland the day before. How he spent his time after leaving the ship has not been completely confirmed but he may have had dinner in another city before ending up where he was killed.

Police have said he was shot after getting into a verbal dispute with another person on the street.

He lived in London and had two children, a relative said.
