Shootout at Oakland, California gas station kills 1, wounds 7 people


Oakland, CA — A shootout at an Oakland gas station was the second shooting involving several people Monday night in the San Francisco Bay Area, killing one person and wounding seven, police said.

Officers were dispatched to the scene on MacArthur Boulevard shortly after 6 p.m. and learned of shootings between several people, police said in a statement.

Officers found shell casings at a gas station in Valero, but there were no casualties. However, dispatchers learned that several victims had been taken to a local hospital for treatment of gunshot wounds.

One died in hospital and the other is in stable condition, police said.

No arrests were made and no other details were immediately released.

At least 19 shots were fired, according to a photo of the shells published in the East Bay Times.

The shootout came just hours after gunmen killed seven people in two locations outside Half Moon Bay. According to San Mateo County Sheriff Christina Corpus, police arrested the suspect, 67-year-old Chunli Zhao, after finding him in his car in the parking lot of the sheriff’s substation.

Half Moon Bay is located 24 miles (38 km) southwest of Oakland and about 30 miles (48 km) south of San Francisco.
