A teenage girl died and three others were injured Tuesday night in downtown Oakland, police said. The 16-year-old, who was listed in critical condition, later died at the hospital. The other three victims in the shooting are in stable condition, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
Police originally said six people were shot, but later reported four were injured in the shooting.
The victims range in age from mid-teens to early 20s, the Associated Press reported. They were attending a vigil two blocks away for someone who drowned in Salinas, Calif. It’s unclear if the shooting is connected to the memorial gathering.
One witness told the Chronicle he was walking down 14th Street about a block away when he heard multiple gunshots fired in rapid succession at 5:41 p.m.
“And then basically there were people running every which way,” said Mason Stone, 39.
People ran off in different directions, ducking for cover.
