Oakland Homicides At 94 After 3 Weekend Shootings

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The number of homicides in Oakland so far this year now stands at 94 after three fatal shootings Saturday.

The Oakland Tribune reports that 22-year-old Adam Pringle of Oakland died in a hospital around 7 a.m. Saturday after his car was taken a few hours earlier at gunpoint.

The newspaper says a 20-year-old Oroville man and a 22-year-old Fairfield man died after being shot at an apartment complex around 11:45 p.m. Saturday.

Police say Raymond Greenwood died at the scene, while Joshua Crouseite died in a hospital early Sunday.

No arrests have been made in any of the three shootings.

The 94 homicides in Oakland this year is one less than all of last year. Last year at this time there were 65 homicides in the city.

    Oakland won’t be safe until theyve all killed each other. Then it’ll be niiiiiiiice and quiet. A safe place to live then.

    Whitey thinks it’s funny to laugh at the misfortune of others. Darkman is no better. Some people don’t have a choice in where they live. I hope you are never a recipient of a random act of violence. Danger is everywhere. It can come to the quietest neighborhood.
