OAKLAND, Calif. —
President Barack Obama's campaign office in Oakland had a mess to clean up Saturday morning.
Around 9:30 p.m. Friday night, some demonstrators broke away from an Occupy Oakland protest march and smashed the windows of the campaign office on Telegraph Avenue.
They were protesting a police shooting that took the life of an 18-year-old high school student in May.
Families had filled the uptown area, as part of Oakland's First Friday Art and Cultural Events Walk.
“We try to do great things in Oakland, and you have knuckleheads who do this,” said local resident Cindy Fields.
There were between 100 and 200-marchers, some of whom smashed the windows of cars parked nearby.
Oakland police said they were following the protesters.
There was no word Saturday morning on how many, if any, were arrested.
Some shouted "leave marijuana alone," apparently opposing the recent federal crackdown on pot clubs.
