Shooting in Oakland Caught on Camera
OAKLAND, Ca. (Derek Drake) -- A shootout, in broad daylight, is captured on a passerby's dash camera and shows some shocking reactions.
According to KPIX-TV in San Francisco, the shooting happened last Wednesday, August 14, 2013, at the intersection of 23rd Ave. and East 23rd St.
The teen wearing a blue hoodie in the video pulled his gun and opened fire on a red car that was passing by. Police counted 15 shots fired.
The most shocking part of the video is the teen crossing the street, wearing the black sweatshirt, he watches and walks away like nothing serious is going on.
KPIX-TV reporter Da Lin, reported six people were near the intersection at the time of the shooting, but one man, who wished to remain anonymous, had a dashboard camera recording at the time.
That driver told KPIX-TV that his neighbor recognized the two teens and said they were the same two who recently robbed him at gunpoint.
Many in the area say officials in Oakland are holding local police back and not allowing them to be aggressive enough, and that is emboldening young teens and violent criminals to be more reckless.
