OAKLAND — A man was killed and seven others were injured Monday after a shooting near an East Oakland gas station, authorities said. Police evidence markers stretched for a block.
Officers 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 shortly before 6:10 p.m.
When police arrived at the Valero station at Seminary Avenue and MacArthur Boulevard, they found no victims at the initial scene, but soon received reports of multiple people obtaining their own transportation to hospitals for treatment.
At a press conference Monday night, an Oakland police spokesperson confirmed eight people were shot, with one person later pronounced dead. His identity was not available, pending next-of-kin notification by the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office coroner’s bureau.
The killing is the sixth homicide investigated by Oakland police this year.
Other officers responded to the scene, blocking off traffic and recovering surveillance-camera footage and spent shell casings. Police did not share any descriptions of associated suspects or vehicles in the incident.
Police had investigated nine 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 in the killing. Anyone with information may call police at 510-238-3821 or 510-238-7950 or Crime Stoppers at 510-777-8572.
