One dead, several injured in East Oakland shooting

OAKLAND — A man died and several others were injured Monday after a shooting in an East Oakland neighborhood, authorities said.

Shortly before 6:10 p.m., police responded to reports of a possible shooting after learning of a ShotSpotter activation near the 5900 block of MacArthur Boulevard in the city’s Seminary neighborhood.

When officers arrived at Seminary Avenue and MacArthur Boulevard, they found a man on the ground, unconscious and suffering from at least one gunshot wound.

Police officers began providing life-saving measures before paramedics arrived and took the man to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

His identity was not available, pending next-of-kin notification by the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office coroner’s bureau.

Reports of multiple people managing to obtain their own transportation to hospitals for treatment could not immediately be confirmed late Monday.

Other officers responded to the scene, blocking off traffic and recovering surveillance-camera footage and spent casings.

Police did not share any descriptions of associated suspects or vehicles in the incident.

The killing is the sixth homicide investigated by Oakland police this year.

Police had investigated eight homicides within the city at this same point in 2022.

Police and Crime Stoppers of Oakland are offering up to $10,000 in reward money for information leading to the arrest of the killer. Anyone with information may call police at 510-238-3821 or 510-238-7950 or Crime Stoppers at 510-777-8572.
