Oakland Shooting Caught on Video

Apparently, not everyone is shocked by the never-ending shootings in Oakland.

This exclusive video obtained by KPIX, caught footage of a daytime shooting along East 23rd Street and 23rd Avenue in East Oakland, as well as the nonchalant reactions of the bystanders. Last week, the shooters sprayed some15 shots "indiscriminately" hitting passing cars.

One of those cars that was hit just so happened to have a video camera on the dashboard, recording the brazen shooting that's reportedly become a fixture in this East Oakland hamlet.

Aside from the shooters -- and the gunshots which can be eerily heard on the video -- the footage also captured a young boy who witnessed the shooting, then went about his business as if he had just seen something as harmless as two people smooching in the park.


At least six people were standing at the intersection when the shooting happened, however, police have not tracked down any suspects at this time.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
