OAKLAND, Calif. -- The suspects in a series of violent incidents Thursday that culminated in an officer-involved shooting at an Oakland apartment complex showed "complete disregard for the safety of the public," Deputy Police Chief Jeffrey Israel said Friday.
Israel said 18-year-old Kenneth Ross of Oakland was shot and killed by officers after he pointed a .45-caliber semiautomatic handgun at them in the parking garage of an apartment complex at 2701 64th Avenue,
between Bancroft Avenue and Foothill Boulevard, about 5:45 p.m. Thursday.
A second suspect, 19-year-old Jaron Castle of Vallejo, who also was carrying a .45-caliber semiautomatic handgun, sustained minor injuries in the shooting but has been treated and released and is now in custody, Israel said.
He said Ross has prior convictions for armed robbery, auto theft and pointing a gun at people and Castle, whom he said has "significant ties to Oakland," has prior convictions for drug-related offenses and resisting arrest.
