Barricaded suspect charged with Oakland shooting

Bay City News
A suspect who was arrested after allegedly barricading himself in a West Oakland home on July 25 has been charged with a shooting that morning, according to the Alameda County District Attorney's Office.

The shooting was reported at 9:23 a.m. when Gabriel Duncan, 23, allegedly shot at an occupied car in the 900 block of Seventh Street, police Officer Christopher Giacomini said in a probable cause statement.

He then fled into a home in the 1000 block of Seventh Street and refused to come out. Police established a perimeter and shut down streets in the area, not letting traffic through.

Eventually he came out of the home, surrendered and was arrested at about noon.

Giacomini said that the man who had been shot at as well as another witness positively identified Duncan as the shooter.

The district attorney's office charged Duncan with assault with a firearm and shooting at an occupied vehicle. He was prohibited from owning a gun because of a 2011 conviction in Nevada County of transferring a high-capacity magazine, according to charging documents.

He remains in Santa Rita Jail under $430,000 bail and is next due in court Thursday to enter a plea.
