Police say arrest is imminent in death of organ donor
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Oakland police now say an arrest is imminent in the shooting death of a merchant marine whose organs saved several lives.
Charles Butler, 23, was shot to death last week outside his home. He was a merchant marine preparing to head to sea for the very first time.
An East Bay transplant patient received Butler's liver on Sunday. And a San Luis Obispo man received Butler's pancreas and a kidney.
Butler has now given the gift of life to four transplant patients.
