3 Killed In Oakland Weekend Violence

OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Three people were killed in Oakland late Saturday night and early Sunday morning, police said.

A driver transporting a gunshot victim in their own car flagged down a medical emergency vehicle near the corner of 30th Street and Telegraph Avenue at 3:07 a.m. this morning, police said.

The victim, a 26-year-old African American woman, was taken to Alta Bates Summit Medical Center but died from her injuries. Investigators are interviewing witnesses to the incident.

A short time later, at 3:20 a.m. officers responded to reports of multiple gunshots in the area of 87th Avenue and G Street. Officials at Highland Hospital reported to police that a 21-year-old African American man had died from gunshot wounds, and police were able to determine that he had been shot at that location.

The two shootings followed one that occurred late Saturday night, at around 11:55 p.m., in which a male teenager was killed on the 9300 block of Sunnyside Street.

Police discovered the 16-year-old African American suffering from multiple gunshot wounds at the scene.

He was taken to the hospital in critical condition, where he underwent surgery, and later died, police said.

Police are currently investigating all three homicides, and no arrests have been made.

    wow, this is really crazy. Got to have gun control now that no one should able to buy or access to gun only to law enforcement officers.

    I used to live and work in oakland for couple years. People told me you would not go or pass 20 ave of oakland, especially at night. Even in the morning, if you go pass 25 ave, you are going to places people wouldn’t go like a forest. neightborhoods are so fun down, prostitutions on the street, no franchise or much businesses, mainstream businesses you don’t see. Probably liquor stores, maybe.

    but, don’t know what to say, certain areas are never developed or civilized. the violents just keep going on.

    Asdr, how precisely do you plan to implement this particular form of Jim Crow law in Oakland? Only the lawabiding citizens would obey it in any case, leaving them at the “mercy”of the lawless villains. Gun control has already been tried in Chicago and Washington, D.C., with enormous loss of life. Both of those cities have experience decreases in crime following the repeal of gun control. Only an unthinking fool would propose going backwards.

      Actually only fools like you and the NRA would want to convince us that outlawing guns is bad. The NRA and who ever support them are as guilty as the kiullers themselves .. you blood suckers

    Why don’t you list the total number of murders for Oak-Town in these articles?
    That is the interesting stuff.

    The women in Oakland need birth control!!!

    Just think, Oakland has at least 50 himicides a year.

    • Saxon

    Where is the OUTRAGE?!!! The Black Community is too paralized and engrossed in blaming the system for all of its ills. Where is John Burris ESQ and Jessie Jackson?!! This black on black crime is condoned by the lack of action on part of the community!!! Instead of going and protesting the killing of a murderer and baby raper who was shooting at the cops, they should be demanding a halt to the terrorization of Oakland!!

    • David Legnosky

      Finally, someone who understands!

    • urolizzard

      You are completely Correct Where is the outrage. Demand a halt in the terrorization of oakland. Let the Police Do there work with the gloves off.

    I am beginning to accept this as part of Oakland culture , while most of us live in different cities and neighborhood find this incomprehensible.

  • gentlewoodworker

    I moved to Oakland in 1976 and finally moved away in 2008. There are many, many fine people in Oakland. I believe the first place to start is to decriminalize ALL recreational drugs. Oakland used to be a very fine city. When crack came along, everything changed. If there is very low profit in drugs, much greed associated with them should go away. It will take time but the War on Drugs has always been about the War on People.
    We are such a brainless society.

    Surprised? I think not. The news article title should have read: “Only 3 Killed In Oakland Weekend Violence.”

    Unfortunately, strengthening gun control in Oakland, Ca. is too complex.
    And now, it’s time for MARTIAL LAW!
    The time has passed for waiting for sanity to sink in…it’s not going to happen.
