13-year-old boy fatally shot in Oakland

A victim who was fatally shot in East Oakland last Tuesday night has been identified by police and Oakland school officials as 13-year-old middle school student Anibal Andres Ramirez of Oakland.

Police said Ramirez was shot multiple times in the 2600 block of Seminary Avenue at 9:51 p.m. Tuesday and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Oakland Unified School District spokesperson John Sasaki said Ramirez was an eighth-grader at Frick Impact Academy, a middle school at 2845 64th Ave., about a half-mile from the shooting scene.

Ramirez had recently transferred to Frick from Bret Harte Middle School on Coolidge Avenue, according to Sasaki.

Grief counselors and staff were made available to students at Frick after Ramirez was fatally shot last week, Sasaki said.
