Just before noon on February 13, the Oakland Police Department responded to calls regarding a shooting in the Upper Dimond-Oakmore neighborhood. When cops arrived to Waterhouse Road, they found eighteen-year-old Larry Ward suffering from a gunshot wound to his leg.
Last week, an older East Oakland couple came home to find that their home had been ripped apart. The bed was knocked over, drawers were wide open, and expensive technology and jewelry with sentimental value were gone. Their back window was smashed and their small dog was terrified.
