Woman Fatally Shot at East Oakland Gas Station

A woman in her 20s was tragically killed on Saturday morning at the Kwik Serv gas station located at 2200 East 12th Street in East Oakland. The victim’s identity is yet to be confirmed by the authorities. The incident occurred at approximately 5:48 a.m. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, and it remains unclear whether she had driven to the gas station to purchase fuel or other items.

Law enforcement officials are currently investigating the motive behind this senseless act of violence. No information regarding potential suspects has been released at this time. The fatal shooting marks the 18th homicide under investigation by the Oakland Police Department this year. Comparatively, by this point last year, the police had already investigated 24 homicides in the city.

In an effort to gather crucial information leading to the arrest of the perpetrator, the Oakland Police Department and Crime Stoppers of Oakland are jointly offering a reward of up to $10,000. Individuals with any relevant information are urged to contact the police at 510-238-3821 or 510-238-7950, or reach out to Crime Stoppers at 510-777-8572.

It is worth noting that the Kwik Serv gas station has been the site of several shootings in recent years. In June 2023, a 6-year-old boy was wounded in the leg by a stray bullet during a shootout between unidentified individuals. Additionally, in March 2021, when the gas station was operated by Valero, a man lost his life due to a fatal shooting.
