About This Image
August 2nd 2007, Oakland, California. Scene of a murder.
I happened to hear about the breaking news story on the radio as I was in the neigborhood. Stopped by and grabbed some shots with the professional photographers on the scene. For my interests, the photographers and newspeople on the scene became an equally compelling photo subject.
The victim was Chauncey Bailey, a prominent local newspaper writer and editor. He was shot down execution style in broad daylight on a downtown street as he walked to work.
Oakland was rated the 8th most dangerous city in the country.
Despite this fact, Oakland has some wonderful neighborhoods can be a great place to live.
