7 wounded in East Oakland shooting

Seven men were wounded in a chaotic East Oakland shooting that continued even after officers scrambled to the scene late Saturday, police said. The violent clash prompted multiple police officers to move door to door through the neighborhood in search of possible suspects, said Officer Johnna Watson, an Oakland police spokeswoman. Patrol officers were first alerted by a bystander around 11:45 p.m. Saturday about gunfire at 77th and Bancroft avenues, police said. When officers arrived at the scene, gunfire continued to erupt and multiple people were injured with gunshot wounds, Watson said.
