    CA - 8 people shot in West Oakland, incld'g 1 year old

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/nation...36N_story.html

    Lots of article out. I'll grab a few more.

    ETA: Here's one from the Kansas City Star paper: http://www.kansascity.com/2011/11/28...d-in-west.html

    I'm pretty sure the shooting was in CA though because it was near the Nimitz (sp?) freeway.

    The shooting was reported at 6:08 p.m. near Seventh and Willow Streets, according to police. There were reports the shooting happened while Oakland rapper Kafani was taping a music video.

    Witnesses said Kafani was driving a van through a scene when it was riddled with bullets and that he was among the people hit.

    Most of the patients were taken to Highland Hospital. The infant was taken to Children's Hospital. Both the Mercury News and KTVU reported the baby was hit in the head and was in critical condition.

    So it was probably gangsters, huh? Wish there was a way change their lifestyle so they would realize gangs are not so good.

    At least eight people, including a 1-year-old boy, were shot Monday night during what police said was a videotaping of a rap music video.

    The child was reported in critical condition after undergoing surgery at Children's Hospital Oakland for a bullet wound to the head. An adult woman was also in critical condition with unspecified injuries, according to Oakland Police Department spokeswoman Johnna Watson. Police said the other victims were in stable condition.
