OAKLAND (KRON) — Critical questions are being raised concerning the Oakland Police Division and the way a lethal state of affairs may need been prevented.
It was final week when police have been referred to as to East Oakland when neighbors reported a person firing a rifle within the neighborhood. After a standoff, the suspect was ultimately shot and killed by police.
It was final Friday when a person with a rifle in his palms opened hearth at his East Oakland neighborhood. Ultimately, the suspect, recognized as Jesse Enjaian, was shot and killed by Oakland police following a standoff.
However now, further allegations have come ahead that the identical man opened hearth within the neighborhood two occasions earlier within the week and police made no try and do something about it.
Lawyer John Burris represents Patrick Reddic, a homeless man who sleeps in his automotive in the identical neighborhood. He says he was victimized by the identical man on Feb. 14.
Reddic says the suspect admitted he shot at him, however when he and different neighbors informed police, they did nothing, aside from take Reddic right down to the police station and threaten to arrest him.
Lawyer Burris says the opposite incident was on Feb. 10. He says there was no motion by police.
Now, he says it’s as much as the division’s new chief to determine what’s happening.
