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.
