|One person has been killed after a gunfight near the Occupy Oakland camp at Frank Ogawa Plaza Thursday evening.
The shooting took place shortly before 5 p.m. several feet from the 12th Street BART station adjacent to the plaza where Occupy protesters have set up camp.
A person acting as a spokesperson for the Occupy Oakland movement said an individual who was wounded in the shooting may have been hiding out from a person or a group of people at the encampment shortly before the incident.
A crowd quickly formed a human chain around the individual who was shot until police arrived. Oakland police are currently interviewing eyewitnesses to determine what happened.
Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan confirmed to ABC7 News that the shooting victim passed away from his injuries.
