The Oakland Police Department (OPD) is investigating a shooting with several people injured. The incident occurred just after 12:45 PM when OPD’s Communications Division received multiple calls of a shooting in the 8200 block of Fontaine Street, near the King Estate school campus.
OPD officers, Alameda County Sheriff Deputies, and California Highway Patrol arrived on the scene and found six people suffering from gunshot wounds.
One set of officers immediately began escorting students and staff to safety as other officers conducted a methodical search looking for possible shooter(s).
In all, six adult individuals with some affiliation to the school were transported to area hospitals. Two were transported with life-threatening injuries and one with non-life-threatening injuries. At last check, one victim was released from the hospital, and two others were pending release.
OPD set up a reunification center for parents and students and called in OPD’s Chaplin to provide support during this traumatic incident.
Officers in OPD’s Ceasefire Division and Violent Crime Operations Center (VCOC) are looking for at least one shooter and possibly more.
OPD will continue working with our federal, state, and local law enforcement partners as this investigation unfolds.
