I am hoping for some more information to come out about this. It's a shame when you can't even take your child out for a bite to eat. Wondering if there is a gang connection to the parent or if this was totally random. Will post if I find anything else.

This is the third child, I believe, killed by stray bullets in Oakland this year. It's been a very bad year in Oakland for homicide and crimes in general.__________________
