City leader wants state of emergency declared in Oakland

OAKLAND, Calif.

All the victims were men or boys. Four of the crimes happened Friday between 2:30 and 8:20 p.m.

The Oakland Tribune reports that Vice Mayor Larry Reid wants a state of emergency declared in Oakland, a move that would free up mutual aid funding from the state.

The police department says Friday's shootings are a result of ongoing feuds between groups.

The department says it will commit all available additional resources to the ongoing investigations.
