(Newser) – A 19-year-old man arrested last week in a police raid on an Oakland bakery has confessed to shooting journalist Chauncey Bailey, the San Jose Mercury News reports. Detectives say Devaughndre Broussard, a self-described "good soldier," targeted the Oakland Post editor because he had been investigating the bakery and the controversial group that operates it.

Broussard and six other people were arrested at Your Black Muslim Bakery, which has been shut down. It was run by an apparently criminal splinter group not affiliated with the Nation of Islam, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Other members of the group may face a litany of charges related to other incidents; Broussard has been booked on suspicion of murder.
