Oakland Lake Merritt Vigil June 22 2021

Lake Merritt Vigil For Peace Livestream By Oakland Councilmember Carroll Fife, District 3

In the wake of the Oakland Juneteenth Festival Lake Merritt Shooting, Oakland City Council President Nikki Fortunado Bas and District 3 Representative Carroll Fife held the “Lake Merritt Vigil For Peace” this evening at the Lake Merritt Pergola. Here are some of the social media entries from the event:

The sad fact of the matter is that this event does not change the course of events one bit: one person, 22-year-old Dashawn Rhodes, is dead; most of the shooting suspects are still at large, and while the Oakland Police Department has the cover of sloppy media coverage reporting that the Lake Merritt Shooting was gang-related, the fact is, the investigator said “gang or group” and overall was uncertain of events.

Stay tuned.
