Unbelievably, this video posted 15 hours ago on YouTube by the Sean Sullivan YouTube channel, (not to be confused with the famed Oakland politico and co-owner of The Port Bar on Broadway) shows a wild scene in Downtown Oakland:
Sean Sullivan wrote:
At 1:15 am I woke to a to the noise of a crowd outside my front window. To my amazement, the ruckus was a sideshow at the corner of West Grand and Telegraph Ave., less than 200 yards from my front door. Blocking all lanes of traffic, the spectators created a protective layer of parked cars and head down to the action on foot. After a few minutes the whole event is ended by the sound of automatic weapons fire (audible only.) Certainly it was somewhat unnerving, at the same time it was exciting and awesome (by definition). A little taste of Oaklands subculture.
Then, this video on Twitter had another angle:
Downtown Oakland. It’s 1:30AM..I’m hearing gunshots, engine revs, & tire screeching; for why? pic.twitter.com/i0lxwQbldT

An estimated 50 cars were involved, according to this post from Citizen App, to Twitter:

And this tweet tried to tie the Oakland Sideshow to the horrible Tacoma, Washington event that featured a police officer running people over with his SUV in an attempt to escape a small mob of people.
Oakland sideshow in front of the Taco Bell on W Grand and Telegraph tonight. ❤️
Even if it was spurred out of coincidence, I’d like to think it was ACAB solidarity with those in Tacoma tonight — which ended in a cop running over onlookers.
