BREAKING: Six Students Shot On Oakland School Campus

Oakland, CA – Six students were shot on a campus that houses several Oakland schools on Wednesday.

Police said that gunfire erupted at about 12:45 p.m. on Sept. 28 at facilities shared by Rudsdale Newcomer High School, Sojourner Truth Independent Study, and Bay Area Technology School (BayTech) in the 8200-block of Fontaine Street in the city’s Oak Knoll/Golf Links community, CBS News reported.

Oakland police confirmed that multiple people had been shot outside the school buildings.

Three of the victims who sustained gunshot wounds were transported to Highland Hospital in Oakland.

Police initially said that two more gunshot victims were taken to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley, KGO reported.

But hospital officials said that Eden Medical Center had gotten three victims of gunshot wounds, bringing the total number of wounded so far to six.

Officials have not released any information about the medical conditions of the six victims, nor have they released any information about their identities, KGO reported.

Multiple shooters were involved in the incident and police believe they all fled the area immediately after the shootings, CBS News reported.

The campus went into lockdown, but students were later evacuated and reunited with their terrified parents.

The Rudsdale Newcomer High School serves students in the Oakland Unified School District who have recently entered the United States and need to learn English, CBS News reported.

The BayTech student body includes students in 6th through 12th grades.
