Official Statement from Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price on Deadly Shooting of Oakland Police Officer

December 29, 2023

OAKLAND, CA – Today, an Oakland Police Officer lost his life in a deadly shooting. This is a tremendous tragedy for our entire community and extremely traumatizing for our law enforcement partners across the County. The deadly violence that we have experienced in Oakland in recent years has no place in Alameda County. The murder of this young officer is inexcusable.

I spoke to Oakland Mayor Sheng Thao this morning and offered my condolences. I also assured Mayor Thao that the Alameda County District Attorney’s office is standing by to assist in any way we can and to support the Town in this critical time.

I also called the President of the Oakland Police Officers’ Association, Barry Donelan, to offer condolences to the officer’s family and colleagues from myself and on behalf of the Alameda County District Attorney’s office. While the investigation is ongoing, I assured Mr. Donelan that my office stands ready to prosecute whoever is responsible and hold them accountable for killing this officer.
