Asian Woman Killed, Man Injured in Oakland Shooting Allegedly Caught on Video
A 33-year-old Asian woman died while a 51-year-old man was left injured following a shooting in a building in Oakland, California, last week.
What happened: Police responded to a call about a shooting that occurred at around 10:11 p.m. on July 17 located in an industrial area in the 500 block of Julie Ann Way, according to East Bay Times.
In the alleged CCTV footage that spread on social media, a group of people can be seen walking outside the building, immediately rushing back moments later. Oakland Police did not confirm or deny that the alleged CCTV video is of the incident in question, though the timestamp on the video would correspond with the date reported by the police.
In the footage, the man in the white shirt pulls out what looks like a gun as another man outside runs at them while shooting.
A woman was apparently caught in the crossfire, sustaining a fatal gunshot wound.
“Officers arrived on scene and located one female subject and one male subject suffering from gunshot wound(s),” the Oakland Police said in a statement to NextShark. “The female victim succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced deceased at a local hospital.”
The other victim’s condition was not made available by the police.
The incident is believed to have taken place at 563 Julie Ann Way, the address for KJD Collective Inc. and the only building on the block with a door that matches the one shown in the alleged video, though Oakland Police have not confirmed the location of the shooting.
Other details: Oakland PD has begun its investigation and the identities of the victims remain undisclosed, the department said in its statement.
Upon reaching out to the business for comment, a man who refused to identify himself would not provide any further details on the incident.
Authorities have not made any arrests as they have yet to release a motive for the shooting.
The recent killing is the third homicide case in Oakland in less than 48 hours, NBC Bay Area reported.
The Oakland police is offering a $15,000 reward for anyone who can give information that could lead to the arrest of the shooter. Those who may have information can contact the Homicide Section at (510) 238-3821 or the TIP LINE at 238-7950.
