Violence erupted Monday in East Oakland with two shot dead near a preschool, a fatal FBI shooting, and three wounded in a shooting near the Fruitvale BART station, police and the FBI said.
A U.S. Marshals Service task force was serving a criminal arrest warrant at 3:22 p.m. Monday in the 2500 block of Fruitvale Avenue when an FBI agent shot a person.
The person was taken to a hospital where they died, according to a statement by the FBI. The agent who opened fire was not injured, FBI officials said.
