Oakland, California shooting: 1 dead, 7 injured in Monday night shooting



Seven people were injured and one person was killed in a shooting Monday night in Oakland, California, police said.

Officers were dispatched to the 5900 block of MacArthur Boulevard just after 6 p.m. to investigate an alert from a ShotSpotter device, a gunshot detection technology, the Oakland Police Department said in a statement.

Officials arrived at the scene and found “several projectiles,” but no injuries, the report said. During the investigation, the police learned that there was a shooting between several people.

Several hospitals then began reporting to the police that they had received several patients who had taken themselves to hospitals for treatment of gunshot wounds.

According to the police, the condition of seven injured people is stable. The name of the deceased victim is pending family notification, they added.

The Oakland shooting was the third mass shooting in California in three days.

Hours earlier, seven people were killed and one seriously injured in shootings at two locations in Half Moon Bay, about 40 miles southwest of Oakland, officials said. The 67-year-old suspect is in custody.

And in Southern California, 11 people were killed in a mass shooting in Monterey Park on Saturday night.
