From a better article, I can gather a guy got shot, his friends shot the shooter, then the original shooter, who was fatally wounded, ran over an innocent bicyclist while dying. It sounds like an absolute shiatshow, wild-west gangster Oakland horseshiat type of day.

The violence unfolded around 7:15 p.m. on Martin Luther King Jr. Way in West Oakland.

Apologies, but his bit was the first thing I thought of when I saw MLK Jr. Way.

In the second, a driver was mortally wounded and a cyclist was killed when the driver's out-of-control car ran him over

Jesus.  What kind of bicycle are we talking about here

After he shot he friend. Are they still friends?

So, do the cyclist's friends now get to shoot the first guy's friends?

Oakland, CA.

They already have the strictest gun laws you'll find in the US.  It doesn't seem to be helping

But did he spray paint his mouth first?

Details matter

Sometimes these articles sound just like my six year old explaining the plot of a pokemon episode to me. You can understand it only if you already know what happened.

Something similar happened to an alleged (probably apocryphally) ancestor of mine.
He defeated a long time nemesis in battle by deftly removing his head, and was so pleased at his accomplishment that he decided to advertise it by tying the severed head to the pommel of his saddle and riding around with it on display.
Unfortunately, he neglected to notice that the head's exposed teeth were rubbing against his leg, where they created a very dirty abrasion, which became infected - and they didn't have any antibiotics then.
Funny story, no?

If white, then mob hit. If black, then gang hit.

Was there a good guy with a gun somewhere in this story? I got a little lost...
 
2022-08-28 10:02:21 AM  
I've been shot at near there before...
Attempted bike jacking.
I shouldn't have been out there.

In all my years here I honestly can't tell if you're stupid or just an asshole. Probably both.

Now a days, when they don't release suspect descriptions, it's because they're black.

I like how "I don't give a fark where you are in America" is translated as "Wherever we are in this country".

but the victims' identities have not been identified.

Identify your editor's identity.

For the longest time we only had two Popeye's franchises in town. I'm not even going to tell you what street they were on, within 20 blocks of each other. Fortunately my brother lived three blocks from one of the franchises so I had ample opportunity to enjoy my Popeye's over the years. Then another opened on 82nd which is the border between civilization and chaos (I live in chaos) and another on 122nd..
