6 people shot, 2 with life-threatening injuries, at Oakland school campus
Six adults were wounded in a shooting Wednesday afternoon at an Oakland school campus, with two suffering life-threatening injuries, according to local officials.
The two with the most serious injuries were listed as critical but stable at Oakland’s Highland Hospital, the county’s main trauma hospital, while a third victim was listed as stable, according to Alameda Health System officials.
The three others injured were either released or are soon to be released from a different hospital, Oakland Assistant Police Chief Darren Allison said at a news briefing. All six victims were 18 or older and had some “affiliation with the school,” but Allison did not say whether they were students or staff.
The King Estate campus on Fontaine Street, where the shooting occurred, is home to multiple schools with students from grades 6-12 onsite. Police found the victims, all of whom were suffering from gunshot wounds, just before 1 p.m.
No suspects have been identified, Allison said, adding, “We are currently and actively looking for one shooter, although there may be other individuals involved.”
