OAKLAND — Homicide detectives and the Alameda County Coroner are still trying to identify a young man, possibly between 16 and 18 years old, found shot to death early Saturday.
He had no identification on him; no one in Oakland has reported him missing and he had injuries to his hands so fingerprints are difficult, Oakland homicide Detective Sgt. Jim Rullamas said Monday.
"We've got nothing on him, no ID, no suspects, no motive for why he was shot," Rullamas said. "He looked young to me, between 16 and 18, he could be older," he said.
He was about 5-feet-6, slender build, an African American with medium, light skin, Rullamas said. He was wearing a black jacket and blue jeans, he said.
The victim was found in the 2700 block of Harold Street, not far from the Fruitvale onramp to southbound I-580. A passer-by saw the victim lying against a wooden fence beside the street about 3:15 a.m. Saturday. The other side of the street is the sound wall barrier for the freeway.
The victim could have been there for several hours, Rullamas said. It appears he was shot there, not dumped, he said.
Saturday's killing was Oakland's 117th homicide this year. Last year there had been 145 homicides on the same date.
Anyone with information about the shooting or who might be able to identify the victim can call Sgt. Rullamas at 510-238-6790 or the Alameda County Coroner's office, 510-268-7300.
Police and Crime Stoppers of Oakland are offering up to $10,000 in reward money for information leading to the arrest of the killer.
