On Saturday morning, at approximately 12:15 am, the Oakland Police Department received a distress call from a couple of citizens who declared that they’d heard gunshots coming from the Vinyl nightclub. Several police officers who were in the vicinity of the nightclub reported that, while on patrol, they’ve also heard the gunshots coming from that direction and went to investigate.
Once arrived at the scene of the crime, the police officers identified eight victims and called the paramedics. According to the hospital’s spokesperson, all of the victims brought in were in stable condition and that their life was not at risk.
