Chaos erupted in downtown Oakland, Calif. Tuesday evening as a gunman killed a teen girl and injured three others, forcing bystanders to take cover during the rush hour commute, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Early reports said six people were shot, but that number was later revised.
The 16-year-old girl who died was reportedly shot in the back. Those shot were male and female ranging in age between mid-teens to early 20s, police said.
An eyewitness told The Chronicle that he heard a number of gunshots in rapid succession around 5:45 p.m. local time. “And then basically there were people running every which way,” Mason Stone said.
“The really scary thing, coming on the heels of the shooting in Orlando, you wonder is it gang related or is it a crazy gunman,” Stone added. “I guess you figure sooner or later if you live in a city like that you ... realize anything can happen at any time.”
