Oakland police today are continuing to investigate four separate shootings that were reported between Friday afternoon and Sunday evening and left five people dead and four others injured.
The latest shooting occurred Sunday night at about 11:15 p.m., claiming the lives of two women and injuring two men. Officers were initially dispatched to the 6500 block of Outlook Avenue on reports of a traffic collision, Officer Roland Holmgren said. Arriving officers found a van that had collided with parked vehicles. Inside the van, police located two females and a male, all of whom were suffering from gunshot wounds, according to Holmgren.
One female victim was pronounced dead at the scene and the second female victim died later at Highland Hospital, Holmgren said. The male victim was also taken to Highland Hospital where he remains in critical condition.
Holmgren said police located a second male shooting victim in the 1400 block of Havenscourt Boulevard, where police believe the incident began.
The victim was transported to Highland Hospital and is stable condition.
At 8:53 p.m. Saturday, officers were called to a residence in the 9800 block of A Street. Officers located three shooting victims at the residence, Holmgren said.
Isabel Flores, 22, of Oakland, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Holmgren. Two other unidentified victims were taken to an area hospital and are in stable condition.
Holmgren said there was a party going on in the residence at the time of the shooting and that at least one gunman fired into the home.
Earlier Saturday, at 12:52 a.m., officerswere dispatched to the 3300 block of 64th Avenue Place on reports of a shooting. Oakland resident Terrance Brown, 40, was found suffering from several gunshot wounds, according to Holmgren.
Emergency personnel responded to the scene and transported Brown to Highland Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Reports of a shooting Friday afternoon brought police to the 800 block of 41st Street at about 2:30 p.m., according to Holmgren. A female shooting victim was located in a vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.
“This weekend's senseless act of violence are a direct reflection of a social epidemic, where some people view the value of life as being worthless,'' Holmgren said.
