OAKLAND, Calif. —
Police in Oakland detained several people after a 10-hour standoff with a possible homicide suspect early Sunday, an officer said.
Officers detained at least seven people at a residence in the 1400 block of 25th Avenue for questioning in connection with a fatal shooting that took place earlier that morning, Oakland police Officer J. Moore said.
The standoff began after two men pulled up to Highland Hospital at around 1:20 a.m., bleeding from gunshot wounds.
One of the victims had been shot in the neck and he later died from his injuries.
The second victim was still in a serious condition as of Sunday afternoon, Moore said.
Police traced a potential suspect to the residence on 25th Avenue and established a perimeter.
As of 8 a.m., dozens of officers were positioned around the home and were waiting to make contact with the suspect, police said.
Sometime before 9 a.m., SWAT officers were recorded escorting a man in cuffs to nearby vehicle, but officers on scene would not confirm if it was the suspect.
The scene was cleared at about 11:30 a.m., according to police.
It was not immediately clear if the shooting suspect was among those detained, Moore said.
No additional details about the search, or the suspect, were immediately available.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
