The Oakland Police Department just sent out the following update about the fatal shooting of a 3-year-old boy in Oakland. Despite previous reports of arrests in the case, they now say there are none yet:

Investigators have reason to believe the shooting of Carlos Nava is a result of gang activity in the area, and are currently interviewing members of identified affiliations to further the investigation. An arrest was made yesterday; however, it is not considered related to the shooting of Carlos Nava at this time. This investigation is ongoing and rapidly developing; we are confident that justice will be served.

OPD also reports a fund has been set up to accept donations to the toddler’s family.

Here’s the information:

Carlitos Nava Fund
Wells Fargo San Leandro Marina Branch
Account #3981855954

    Righttttt. They are interviewing “members of identified affiliations.” This will end with no nody arrested because gang members don’t talk or the wrong person will be arrested and convicted based on the context. I just don’t have faith in Oakland’s ability to keep it’s citizens safe.
