Oakland Juneteenth Celebration Ends in Dramatic Shooting Caught on Video

An Oakland Juneteenth celebration ended in tragedy when multiple people got shot … and the whole thing was on video, including footage of folks running and ducking for cover.

The festivities went down at Lake Merritt — a lagoon centrally located in the city — and took a turn for the worse Wednesday evening … after a group of individuals started doing donuts in cars and on motorbikes at a major intersection in town.
However, this is where cops say everything went wrong … ’cause a fight broke out in the crowd that ended with unknown gunmen firing multiple shots back and forth … and injuring several people in the process.
The follow-up clip shows several bodies laid out on the ground, either after being shot or keeping down to avoid the bullets as gunshot after gunshot echoes through the intersection.
People can also be seen rendering aid to one person who is lying out on the sidewalk after the shooting.{snip}
It’s not the first time a shooting’s gone down during Juneteenth celebrations in that area. Back in 2021 — the first year it was a federal holiday — a 22-year-old was killed, and 6 others were injured at the Lake Merritt celebration.
Police say the investigation into Wednesday night’s shooting is ongoing.
