US Six people were shot at a California school, official says
Republicans want to win school boards. They're winning in white counties by running on race.
Conservatives capture school board seats with money from national political action committees, high-profile endorsements and local parent groups.The sometimes little-noticed races present an opportunity, Republican leaders say, to oversee what children are taught and advance a broader conservative agenda. Frustration with pandemic restrictions, teaching about civil rights and allowing accommodations for transgender students are among the animating issues for GOP-backed candidates, many of them new to politics or education policy.
Six people were injured in a shooting at an Oakland school Wednesday, authorities said.
The victims, all of whom were adults, were being treated at local hospitals,.
Two were in critical but stable condition, and a third person was listed as stable at a local trauma hospital, said Alameda Health System CEO James Jackson.
A fourth person suffered what Oakland Police Department Assistant Chief Darren Allison described as non-life-threatening injuries. Two others were set to be released from a different hospital, he said.
Additional details about the victims were not immediately available.
Ted Cruz was booed by a Texas audience when he said his plan to end school shootings is putting more police officers in schools
"You guys can instead sing kumbaya with them and hope they'll just stop, but what you're proposing doesn't work," Cruz said to a heated audience.Cruz spoke about guns and other contentious topics at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin on Saturday, where he was met with a responsive audience.
The shooting occurred shortly before 1 p.m. at a campus with four schools, including a middle and high school, in the city's Eastmont Hills neighborhood, Allison told reporters.
The victims had "some affiliation" with Rudsdale, one of the schools. Schaff said earlier that the gunfire erupted at Sojourner Truth, a K-12 independent study school also at the campus.
Victims were found inside the school, Allison said.
Allison did not identify a potential motive or suspect. Authorities are searching for one shooter, though others may have been involved, he said.
Schaaf said the incident “shocks the soul” and that “the unbridled access to firearms in our country is inexcusable.”
The shooting is thein less than a month. Authorities said a 12-year-old shot a 13-year-old at Madison Park Academy on Aug. 29, wounding the boy.
The shooting came as the California city of nearly half a million. On Tuesday, Oakland Police Chief LeRonne Armstrong aimed at blunting that violence.
