15-year-old girl killed in Oakland shooting

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Oakland police are trying to determine a motive for a shooting that left a 15-year-old girl dead and two men wounded, one critically.

The shooting occurred Saturday night as the car the three victims were in neared a street.

Sgt. Randy Brandwood tells the Oakland Tribune someone opened fire on the vehicle, hitting all three occupants. The driver was able to back up before stopping against a fence.

The girl was pronounced dead at the scene. Brandwood said the driver and the other passenger, both in their 20s, were taken to a hospital.

The driver was in stable condition. The other man was critical.

None of the victims has been identified.

Brandwood said the driver did not cooperate with investigators when they tried to interview him.
