Multiple students injured during mass shooting at Oakland, California school: report
Multiple injuries have been reported following a mass shooting at a high school near Oakland, California, according to local law enforcement.
"The shooting happened at around 12:45 p.m. at facilities shared by Rudsdale Newcomer and Bay Area Technology School (BayTech) at 8210 Fontaine St. in the city's Oak Knoll/Golf Links neighborhood. The Sojourner Truth Independent Study online learning program is also based at the site," CBS News Bay Area confirmed on Wednesday.
"Three patients were taken to Highland Hospital in Oakland and two others to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley," the affiliate noted, adding that "multiple shooters were possibly involved, but Oakland police do not believe the shooter or shooters were still at the school following the shooting."
The student body at the 6th through 12th-grade charter school consists mostly of "recently-arrived immigrants who have fled their home countries because of violence and instability," the outlet pointed out.
There have been nearly thirty school shootings in the United States so far in 2022.
