Gunman Shot At Police In Oakland And Was Taken Into Custody Alive


Officials say a gunman who fired numerous shots Friday morning in east Oakland near the Oakland Zoo has been disarmed and is in police custody.

A sniper who fired several shots Friday morning in East Oakland near 98th Avenue and Interstate 580 was seen spray painting crude pictures on a car and a house before he was taken into police custody.

The suspect is a 32 year old white supremacist named Jesse Enjoin. In the days leading up to the standoff, Enjaian began espousing racist rhetoric and anti-Black epithets on his now-deleted Twitter page.

He was disarmed and loaded into an ambulance shortly after 10 a.m. after being wounded by gunfire, but it was unclear where the shots came from that hit him, according to Oakland police spokeswoman Officer Johnna Watson.

There are photographs of the suspect standing on the roof of a house, firing several shots at police helicopters. And the armed shooter defiantly strolled down the street with his rifle in hand. No motive has been determined at this time.

    Well this plays out all over this wicked as land, now I am in no way upset that they didn’t get killed, I’m pissed because even other white folk know, had this been a person of color, (especially black) this 50 year old man would be a justified homicide. Case close news at 11:00….😠😠
