Fox Theater, COVID-19, Coronavirus

The Fox Theater, closed, on the afternoon of March 17, 2020, the first day of a shelter-in-place to combat coronavirus.

UPDATED on Nov. 11, 10:15 a.m. — A woman waiting for doors to open for a concert at Oakland’s Fox Theater was struck by a stray bullet Wednesday afternoon, Oakland police said.

The shooting happened just before 2:30 p.m. in front of the theater, at 1807 Telegraph Ave. The band All Time Low was scheduled to perform Wednesday night, but the show was canceled after the shooting.

The woman, whose name has not been released, was taken to an area hospital and was in stable condition as of Thursday morning, Oakland police spokeswoman Kim Armstead said.

KTVU reported that the shooting followed an incident where a vehicle owner confronted someone reportedly breaking into the owner’s car. The alleged burglars drove away and that’s when the woman was shot, KTVU reported. Armstead did not comment on the circumstances of the shooting.

Armstead said the investigation is ongoing and no further detail would be reported right away. Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information regarding the shooter is asked to call the OPD Felony Assault Unit at 510-238-3426.
