Police responded at about 12:45 a.m. to reports of a possible suicide at 957 Seventh St., Holmgren said. Officers arrived to find a 16-year-old girl suffering from a fatal gunshot wound, which officers determined did not appear to be a suicide.
The girl's 17-year-old boyfriend was taken into custody and later admitted that he shot the girl while trying to scare her with the gun, according to Holmgren.
Police arrested the boyfriend for the victim's death, the city's sixth homicide this year, and the case is pending review by the Alameda County District Attorney's office, Holmgren said.
Another Oakland shooting occurred at about 3:20 a.m. today at 14th Street and Broadway. Two victims were injured and transported to a local hospital where they were listed in stable condition, according to police.
