8-Year-Old Girl Shot Dead During Sleepover Visit In East Oakland

OAKLAND (CBS SF) — An 8-year-old girl on a sleepover at a friend’s apartment was killed and two other children and an adult injured Wednesday night when someone fired shots into the East Oakland apartment, according to authorities.

The girl was identified as Alaysha Carradine. She would have been a third-grader at Fruitvale Elementary School in the fall, Oakland Unified School District spokesman Troy Flint said.

Oakland police said Alaysha was one of four people hit by gunfire when someone fired shots into the apartment at 3440 Wilson St. in the city’s Dimond District around 11:15 p.m. Wednesday.

Carradine’s family said she was at a sleepover at a friend’s house when the shooting happened. She was scheduled along with her friend for a modeling shoot later Thursday.

The other three victims are all listed in stable condition at hospitals.

Flint said one of the other people who was shot was 7-year-old Amara York, who is scheduled to start second grade at Fruitvale Elementary School this fall.

Police said the other victims are a woman and a 4-year-old boy, but haven’t released their names. Investigators have also not disclosed a possible motive for the shooting.

Thursday morning, there were seven bullet holes in the screen door of the apartment where the shooting happened.

That unit is one of five apartments at the white two-story building on Wilson Street, just east of Interstate Highway 580 near Fruitvale Avenue.
