Oakland Officers Pursue Vehicle That Struck Civilian and Police Cars


Oakland police this morning pursued an armed suspect who allegedly hit civilian and police vehicles before fleeing the city, a police lieutenant said.

Police Lt. Chris Bolton initially wrote on Twitter around 8:50 a.m. that police and California Highway Patrol officers were looking for a black or gray four-door Mitsubishi with the last three license plate digits of 204.

Police received reports that the suspect intentionally struck both civilian and police vehicles and was armed. Locations where incidents occurred include East 23rd Street and Coolidge Avenue and Fruitvale Avenue and Hyde Street, as well as at least one location in West Oakland, Bolton said.

The lieutenant said police terminated their pursuit for public safety reasons and the vehicle fled out of Oakland. No other details were immediately available from police or the CHP.
