Oakland music video shoot erupts in gunfire; 18-year-old killed

A music video recording became deadly in Oakland Monday night after gunfire erupted during filming that killed an 18-year-old man and injured four others, city police officials said.

The incident follows mass shootings that killed more than two dozen people in a week in California.

It was reported just after 6 p.m. on MacArthur Boulevard in Oakland, where police were alerted to the sound of gunfire through the ShotSpotter program.

Officers found spent cases at the scene, but no victims. Shortly thereafter, however, several shooting victims were reported in Oakland-area hospitals.

A person identified Tuesday as 18-year-old Mario Navarro died from his injuries.

According to the Oakland Police Department, 40 to 50 people filmed a music video on MacArthur Boulevard.

“During the recording, gunfire erupted in different directions from multiple gunmen,” Acting Oakland Police Commissioner Darren Allison said at a news conference on Tuesday.

A total of five people, including Navarro, were shot, Allison said. Three other people were injured in a car accident while trying to flee the scene.

The victims of the shooting ranged in age from 15 to 63.

One round hit a neighboring store, Allison said.

“We are investigating the possibility of a gang or group connection to this incident,” Allison said.

“We have a good feeling for those involved when it comes to groups and gangs,” said the police chief. “We’re not ready to release that at this point.”

Allison called the mass shootings a “tragic trend,” citing the Monterey Park and Half Moon Bay shootings.

“Last night, unfortunately, this trend was seen closer to home,” he said.
