1 Dead, 7 Hurt In Multiple Shootings In Oakland

OAKLAND (CBS SF) – Police in Oakland have detained one in connection with an early-morning shooting that left one dead, a day after seven other people were injured in multiple shootings in the city.

Officers responded to the 1300 block of 83rd Avenue shortly after 1 a.m. Monday and found one victim suffering from a gunshot wound, an Oakland police officer said.

The victim was transported to a local hospital where they were later pronounced dead.

Shortly after, police took one person into custody connection with the shooting.

Sunday, three gunshot victims were found at a home in the 3300 block of Adeline Street shortly before 4 p.m. Sunday, including one woman, said Lt. Robert Chan.

An additional two victims dropped off at Highland Hospital later in the day may have also been connected to the shooting, but that remains under investigation, Chan said.

None of the injuries were life-threatening.

Earlier in the afternoon, around 3 p.m., there was another shooting at 59th Street and Telegraph Avenue. One male victim suffered non-life threatening injuries.

A seventh shooting victim sought treatment at Highland Hospital shortly after 4 p.m., and said he was shot in West Oakland. However, Chan said there were no shots reported in that area and police are investigating whether that victim, who has been uncooperative with investigators, might be connected to one of the day’s other incidents.

    Maybe we should be asking “what’s wrong with Oakland?”. Elsewhere in the country the homicide rate is going down, but not here. Even within Alameda County there isn’t much change, setting Oakland aside. It’s something to ponder.
