Pastor Convinces Woman To Surrender In Oakland Shooting

OAKLAND (BCN) – A woman turned herself in to police on the advice of her pastor for her alleged involvement in the shooting of a man in Oakland on Tuesday, police said.

Officers responded to reports of a shooting at 889 West Grand Ave. at about 7 p.m. and found a man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

The man was taken to a hospital, where he underwent surgery and was listed in stable condition as of Wednesday morning, police said.

Shortly after officers responded to the shooting, police received a call from the pastor of a West Oakland church. A female parishioner had reportedly come to him for advice about the shooting and the pastor told her to surrender, according to police.

Officers met the woman at the church, where she allegedly turned over a firearm and described her role in the incident, police said.

The woman was booked into Alameda County Jail and is facing charges of assault with a deadly weapon.

The investigation is under investigation and police are urging anyone with information to call police at (510) 238-3426.
