The Oakland Police Department (OPD) is investigating firearm-related injuries that occurred on July 4, 2022, after 9:30 PM, in the 7000 block of Coliseum Way.

Following last night’s Oakland A’s postgame fireworks show, officers were notified of a possible shooting victim inside the ballpark. During the preliminary investigation, officers located three fans struck by bullet fragments from what appears to be celebratory gunfire occurring throughout the city of Oakland. A fourth victim later walked into a local hospital. All four victims sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

The Oakland Police Department and Crime Stoppers of Oakland are offering a reward up to $20,000 for information leading to an arrest(s).

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the OPD Felony Assault Unit at (510) 238-3426.

OPD will continue working closely with the Oakland A’s Security to ensure the safety of all those attending future A’s games at the Coliseum.
