Sun Sep 23 2007 (Updated 09/28/07)Police Kill Man in North Oakland
Sun Sep 23 2007 (Updated 09/28/07)Gary King Killed by OPD
At 4:45PM on September 20th, a police officer shot and killed a man on the street in North Oakland. Gary King, Jr., age 20, had just exited a store on the corner of 54th street and MLK. Apparently an Oakland police sergeant approached him for questioning. The details of what happened next are unclear, but it seems that it involved the officer using a taser. King pulled away and it appears that during his attempt to flee, the officer shot him twice in the back.
A swarm of police cars (including helicopters) arrived on the scene very quickly, but it was a number of minutes before an ambulance arrived. In the meantime, one officer appeared to be performing CPR. Gary King reportedly died at the hospital a short time later. Police on the scene dealt somewhat roughly with bystanders, including relatives of Mr King.
Someone spray-painted "Police did this" on one of the BART support columns on MLK at 54th. A memorial with candles and personal items is set up at the place where the shooting occurred.Photos On Monday, September 24th, over 100 family, friends, neighbors and other concerned people protested at Oakland City Hall against the murder of Gary King. Gary's family is determined to continue to fight for Justice for Gary. There will a protest every Thursday at 12 noon at Oakland City Hall.
