Shooting in Oakland Leads to Bicycle Crash and Three Dead

Democrat-run Oakland continues to look more and more like a third-world war zone, as three more residents wound up dead after a shooting and a bicycle crash.

The deadly string of events started when a man was gunned down on a street corner. That shooter fled in a speeding vehicle, but “associates” of the first victim shot and killed the escaping suspect, but not before he fatally ran over a bystander on a bicycle. 

According to initial reports, it all started about 7:15 p.m. when a man was fatally shot in the 2800 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Way.

Authorities confirmed that the victim, a 36-year-old man, was standing outside on the 2800 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Way when another man approached and shot him. The shooter, believed to be in his 40s, then attempted to drive away from the scene in a Chevrolet Malibu.

“Acquaintances” of the victim began firing at the shooter, mortally wounding him. But the man still drove a short distance south on Martin Luther King Jr. Way before he lost control of the vehicle and hit a bicyclist.

The bicyclist, a 48-year-old man, was killed in the collision.

All three men involved were pronounced dead at the scene.

As of 9 p.m., police had Martin Luther King Jr. Way shut down in both directions between 27th and 29th streets, where people were observed weeping and some hugging each other outside the police caution tape.

These three deaths were just part of a wave of violent crimes in blue-run cities that took place over the weekend including. At least two people were killed in a shooting at a grocery store on Sunday in Bend, Oregon, and one person was killed, and at least four injured on NY’s famed Coney Island Board Walk.
