Map: A Month of Oakland Violence
In the first week or so of February, police and media reports said seven people had been killed and 21 wounded in a rash of shootings, prompting me to try to keep a running count using media and police reports.
A quick key: *Green* placemarks denote homicides. *Red* placemarks denote attacks on people. Where possible, I’ve used published media synopses of those shootings; when those aren’t readily available, I’ve used Oakland Police Department spreadsheet data that does not contain information on casualties associated with shooting incidents. *Yellow* placemarks denote reports of shooting into inhabited or uninhabited homes and vehicles or negligent discharge of firearms. One purple marker denotes the site of a police shooting. One blue marker denotes an arrest after a shooting incident.
