Family and Community Members Express Anger Over the Murder of Alan Blueford and Cover-up
A Skyline High School senior is dead after Oakland police profiled and opened fire on him. The summary execution of 18-year-old Alan Dwayne Blueford occurred near 90th Avenue and Birch Street in Oakland, early in the morning on Sunday, May 6th. Alan and two friends were standing outside waiting for some female acquaintances to give them a ride. According to Oakland police, two of their officers believed one of the youth was carrying a gun.

It is unclear how this was determined based on their looks. Police say the young men ran, and officer Miguel Masso chased Alan for two blocks before firing three shots, killing him instantly. All three shots struck Alan in the back, and Masso shot himself in the foot as well. The officer was taken to the hospital for treatment, while young Alan was left to lie on the street, his lifeless body staying at the scene of the murder for four hours.

Several marches and demonstrations have been held demanding justice for Alan Blueford since he was killed. On May 12th in front of the Eastmont Mall Police sub station, Alan's cousin spoke of the lies the police told the family immediately after his killing.
