Eight people were shot last night in Oakland, during the filming of a rap music video. Three of the eight victims were children, a 1-year-ol boy was in critical condition after being shot in the head. An adult was also left in critical condition with unspecified injuries.
The shooting occured in a liquor store parking lot, where dozens of people had come together, possibly for a taping by Oakland rapper Kafani. According to officials, Kafani was at the scene but was unhurt.
“News reports wrong I did not shoot a video today,” Kafani tweeted. “Just cuz a promo van with my picture on it there dont make me there!!! I drive a bentley not a promo van!! pray for my lil cuz thx.”
According to police, an argument broke out and bullets flew, striking the rapper’s van and littering the parking lot with at least 50 shells. Police said more than one shooter was involved. Police were looking for a dark-colored buick occupied by three teenagers and a man in his 30s.
