OAKLAND — A man was shot to death in East Oakland on Thursday night, authorities said.

Shortly after 7:15 p.m., police responded to reports of ShotSpotter activity in the 2800 block of Abbey Avenue in the city’s Allendale neighborhood.

When officers arrived, they found a man in his early twenties suffering from multiple gunshot wounds outside a home. Despite emergency life-saving measures, the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

His identity was not immediately available, pending notification of next of kin from the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office coroner’s bureau.

Oakland police said they are treating the man’s death as a homicide, the fourth one investigated by the department in the first six days of 2022, and only a day after the city’s third early Wednesday.

Police have arrested suspects in two homicides, including the year’s first one late last Saturday. Last year, Oakland did not log its second homicide until Jan. 9.

The department investigated 134 homicides in 2021, not including five others investigated by the California Highway Patrol within city limits. The CHP is investigating Tuesday’s shooting on westbound Interstate 580 on the transition from westbound Interstate 80 within Oakland city limits that killed a 28-year-old Alameda County Sheriff’s Office recruit.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
