OAKLAND, Calif. —
Oakland Police Chief Sean Whent held an urgent meeting with his command team Thursday night just hours after the city's latest homicide.
Police said they responded to reports of gunfire on the 8300 block of Hillside Street at about 3:20p.m. and they found a man dead at the scene.
Whent told members of the force that he's shifting resources to address a recent crime surge.
He said he plans to send mobile command posts to troubled area along with crime reduction teams, problem solving officers and members of the highway patrol.
