Gunman Remains at Large After Wounding 6 Adults at Oakland School for Immigrants

HeadlineSep 29, 2022

In Oakland, California, at least six adults were injured in a mass shooting on Wednesday. The shooting occurred at Rudsdale Newcomer High School, which serves students who are at risk of not graduating and have recently immigrated to the U.S. after fleeing their home countries “because of violence and instability.” Oakland’s Assistant Chief of Police Darren Allison says a suspect remains at large.

Darren Allison: “We are currently and actively looking for at least one shooter, although there may be other individuals involved. We have our ceasefire teams, as well as our violent crime operations teams, actively in this moment following up on leads, looking to bring to justice those responsible for this heinous act.”
