Traffic impacted in the area of 90th Ave. & Bancroft Ave. OPD officer involved shooting.

On Sunday, November 15, 2015 during the early evening, Oakland police officers were involved in an officer involved shooting in the area of 90th Avenue and Bancroft Avenue. The preliminary investigation at this time is a group of uniformed officers who were engaged in towing vehicles related to sideshow activity when they were approached by a subject who pointed a firearm in their direction. At least several officers discharged their service firearm fatally striking the subject. After the subject was shot, the officers immediately performed CPR until medical personnel arrived on scene. Medical personnel arrived shortly after.

No officers were reported to be injured.

Consistent with Departmental policy, this officer involved shooting is being investigated by the Oakland Police Department’s Homicide Section and Internal Affairs Division. An independent and concurrent investigation is also being conducted by the Alameda County District Attorney's Office.

The Oakland Police Department is committed to transparency. However, a complete investigative process requires information be limited in order to maintain the integrity of the investigation. For this reason, only those preliminary details that do not compromise the investigation can be released at this time. Additional information will be released as soon as practical.
