Oakland Police Say Officers Chased, Shot Suspect

OAKLAND (AP) — Oakland police say officers shot a suspect multiple times after they were led on a 25-mile vehicle pursuit.

Authorities said Thursday that officers in several Vallejo Police patrol cars chased a suspect’s vehicle from Vallejo to Oakland before it crashed near an elementary school around 5 p.m. The school was locked down and parents were escorted on campus to retrieve students.

Oakland Police spokeswoman Johnna Watson said the suspect was taken to a nearby hospital with gunshot wounds.

Watson did not identify the suspect or discuss the suspect’s medical condition.

Vallejo Police did not return phone and email inquiries.
