Eight people were shot, one fatally, in Oakland on Monday evening, the third mass shooting event in gun-controlled California during the last three days.
CBS News reported the Oakland incident occurred at a gas station, where there was “a shooting between several individuals.”
No victims were present when police arrived on scene, then the officers learned “multiple” victims had self-transported or otherwise been taken to the hospital for treatment.
KTVU quoted Oakland Police Department’s Kim Armstead, saying, “Upon arrival, they located shooting scene, they located casings, but no victims. Shortly thereafter, our communications division received notification of multiple gunshot wound victims, who self transported to local hospitals.”
The deceased individual was identified as 18-year-old Mario Navarro.

The Lunar Celebration attack and the farm attacks were followed by the shooting in Oakland, which some witnesses said “erupted during the filming of a music video.”
California has more gun control than any state in the Union.
