When police arrived at a corner room at the motel, they found a man trying to perform CPR on the woman. A dispatcher was on the phone with him trying to guide him through it, but it was too late. Police believe the woman was shot. Police said there was a lot of blood in the room.
The woman has not been identified, but police believe she is an Oakland resident.
Police don't have any witnesses and said the man who did CPR knew her, but they didn't elaborate. No motive has been established and no arrests have been made.
This is Oakland's seventh homicide since Friday.
