A policewoman shot a man to death this morning in the Adams Point neighborhood of Oakland, after he assaulted her with what the police have only described as a “metal object,” but which witnesses say was a bike chain.
The officer, who has not been named, received a call that the man had assaulted somebody with a bike chain early in the morning.
She radioed for more police and an ambulance at eight-thirty-six after shooting the man, who is black, and who relatives have said suffers from an unspecified mental illness.
KBOO spoke with Nayomi Munaweera, a Sri Lankan-American author based in Oakland, who witnessed the immediate aftermath of the shooting.
