Oakland 8-year-old Slain During Sleepover


8-year-old Alaysha Carradine was at a sleepover with two other children and their grandmother in the Dimond District neighborhood when gunfire struck the apartment’s front security screen door killing Carradine and wounding everyone else in the room. The shooting happened in the 3400 block of Wilson Avenue, between Montana Street and MacArthur Boulevard. Khamel Hardin, 22, a relative who lives in the apartment, said he was in the living room with the children when he heard gunshots and saw a shot pierce the door. No suspects have been arrested and police don’t have a motive for the attack. Carradine’s death is Oakland’s 54th homicide of the year.
