Concord man sentenced to 32 years in Antioch love triangle killing

MARTINEZ — A Concord man was sentenced to 32 years in state prison for killing his romantic rival in an ambush-style 2020 shooting, court records show.

Kelandre Dunn, 36, once faced life without the possibility of parole. But in a plea deal finalized Feb. 2, prosecutors agreed to drop a murder charge and special circumstances enhancement in exchange for Dunn’s no contest plea to voluntary manslaughter.

Dunn was formally sentenced to 32 years, and is in North Kern State Prison, records show. He spent nearly three-and-a-half years in jail while the case was pending.

According to authorities, Dunn ambushed and shot 39-year-old Dmar Tucker, of Vallejo, at 4 a.m. on Oct. 3, 2020. Police said at the time Dunn waited for Tucker to park his car on Happ Arnold Street in Antioch, then opened fire at him. Tucker was struck by a single bullet and killed.

Police said that both Dunn and Tucker were dating the same woman, and therein lied the motive. Dunn was quickly identified as a suspect and arrested within days of the homicide.
