    Report: Oscar Grant's Aunt Shot, Killed in Oakland
    Oscar Grant's aunt died in a shooting on Tuesday.

    Oscar Grant's aunt was shot and killed in East Oakland on Tuesday, a victim of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, according to reports.

    Relatives and friends say that Lanedria Grant, 47 -- whose son was shot and wounded by Oakland police in 2012 -- was not the intended target of gunfire that erupted at 6:45 p.m. in the Brookfield Village neighborhood, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

    Not far away is the platform of BART's Fruitvale Station, where Oscar Grant was shot in the back by a BART police officer in 2009.

    Lanedria Grant was Oscar Grant III's father's sister, the newspaper reported, and was known in the community for helping senior citizens.
