Oakland police are continuing to investigate the shooting death of 15-year-old Jubrille Jordan of Oakland in broad daylight on Sunday afternoon. Police said Jordan was killed and a 14-year-old boy was injured while they were walking with a group of friends and family members in the 6600 block of Lion Way in East Oakland, near the Lion Creek Crossings apartment complex, at about 3:40 p.m. The boy was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening wounds. The suspect in the shooting remains at large. Oakland police described him as a 13- to 16-year-old black male who was armed with a handgun. They said he may have been wearing a red T-shirt. Police said there’s a $15,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.
Oakland schools spokesman Troy Flint said Jordan attended school in the Oakland Unified School District until June 16, 2011. Flint said Jordan formerly attended Melrose School at 1325 53rd Ave., which offers classes from kindergarten through eighth grade. Jordan’s death is the second shooting death of a teenager near the Lion Creek Crossings apartment complex in the past six months. On July 10, 15-year-old Hadari Askari, who wanted to become an Oakland firefighter, was fatally shot in the 6700 block of Leona Creek Drive.
