The shooting comes a day after Police Chief LeRonne Armstrong appealed once again to the public to help stop the city’s gun violence following the city’s 100th homicide, a fatal shooting at the Coliseum BART Station. There were 70 homicides in Oakland at this same time last year.
Armstrong’s latest appeal came after Oakland experienced an extraordinary amount of violence in the space of 24 hours that started Monday afternoon with a double-homicide, an officer-involved shooting, a triple-shooting, and a stabbing, and ended with a fatal shooting early Tuesday morning.
