Baffled, worried and angry young activist over East Oakland school campus shooting that left several injured and hospitalized

OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) — Residents responded Wednesday after a shooting occurred at a building on Fontaine Street that houses several schools, including Bay Area Technology School, Rudsdale Newcomer High School and Sojourner Truth Independent Study in East Oakland.

Tonyia Carter of Youth ALIVE! spoke while students waited for their parents at nearby St. Cuthbert’s Church.

“So the children who were in this situation were sent to the hospital,” she said. “Their parents have been notified. So we’re here to see what kind of resources we can support this community and the kids at this time.”

At least six people were injured and taken to nearby hospitals, according to a spokesperson for the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office.

“We’re confused, we’re worried,” Carter said. “Not only that, we’re p***** off, because the people who have to be on the ground and on the streets and in schools aren’t the ones being funded for this work. So we’re p** * ** Off, baffled and all, because that kind of stuff might have stepped in. You have to have people in those schools and on those campuses that those kids are connected with.
