A tragic incident unfolded in Oakland’s Eastlake district early Thursday morning when an unidentified man was fatally shot. The authorities are currently working diligently to establish the man’s identity before making it public.
According to the police, the incident took place at the intersection of Seventh Avenue and International Boulevard around 5:11 a.m. The victim was discovered with gunshot wounds, and despite immediate medical attention, he was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. At this stage, law enforcement officials have yet to determine a motive for the killing, and no arrests have been made.
