Man killed in shooting involving Oakland police
on November 9, 2010
A domestic dispute between a man and a woman in East Oakland last night ended with one suspect shot and killed from service pistols fired by officers at the scene.
The man is a 37-year-old Oakland resident. No officers were injured in the incident.
When Oakland police officers arrived at the scene of the domestic dispute at the 5800 block of Bancroft Avenue, the suspected male, a 37-year-old Oakland resident, fled on foot toward Trask Avenue. Additional officers responded to assist and locate the man. Shortly thereafter, officers fired several rounds and struck the suspect. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The names of officers involved are not being released at this time. The Oakland Police Department will hold a press conference today at 1 p.m. to discuss any recent developments.
