8-year-old Alaysha Carradine was at a sleepover with two other children and their grandmother in the Dimond District neighborhood when gunfire struck the apartment’s front security screen door killing Carradine and wounding everyone else in the room. The shooting happened in the 3400 block of Wilson Avenue, between Montana Street and MacArthur Boulevard. Khamel Hardin, 22, a relative who lives in the apartment, said he was in the living room with the children when he heard gunshots and saw a shot pierce the door. No suspects have been arrested and police don’t have a motive for the attack. Carradine’s death is Oakland’s 54th homicide of the year.

East Oakland Organizer Needed

The East Oakland Stadium Alliance (EOSA) is seeking an Oakland-based grassroots organizer for a short-term engagement to help grow and mobilize our coalition! Comprised of local businesses, workers, labor organizations, and community members, we are deeply concerned about the Oakland A’s proposal to leave the Coliseum site in East Oakland and build a new stadium at the port. An ideal candidate has on-the-ground campaign field experience, a strong awareness of Oakland and Alameda County political figures, and deep ties to East and West Oakland communities. Being a local resident of Oakland is a plus.

Employment with EOSA is a part-time role and will last for a minimum of four months with an opportunity to extend longer. Transportation and cell phone use would be reimbursed and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

If interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Emily Penrod, emily.penrod@deweysquare.com. For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
