Oakland School Shooting Leaves Six People Injured

Six people were injured Wednesday in a shooting at the King Estates Campus in East Oakland where multiple schools are located. All of the victims are adults. 

The shooting took place at around 12:30 p.m. The area is home to Rudsdale Continuation High School, BayTech Charter School, Rudsdale Newcomer High School and Sojourner Truth Independent Study.

Two victims were listed in critical condition. At least one was able to be released after treatment of their injuries. Classes were canceled on Thursday.

"Today’s shooting at an Oakland school was a horrifying act of violence that has grown too familiar," said Gov. Gavin Newsom. "Yet again, our kids were in the crossfire. This cannot continue — gun violence has taken too much from our communities."

"What I know is guns are on our campuses where our babies are supposed to be protected and that is out of control," Councilman Loren Taylor tweeted. "We need to do more to protect the lives of our kids that means bringing in the resources, keeping the guns off the streets."

No information about the suspect or suspects had been released as of Wednesday evening.
