Shooting breaks out while rapper shoots music video

OAKLAND (UPI) | November 29, 2011

At least eight people -- including a baby who was shot in the head and critically wounded -- were shot and wounded Monday night in Oakland, Calif., police said.

The other victims were less seriously hurt, KNTV, San Francisco, reported.

Witnesses said the shooting broke out while Kafani, an Oakland rapper, was shooting a music video. They described a van with advertising for his music being hit several times.

The van was later spotted parked at Highland Hospital and was reported to have been used to drive some of the shooting victims to the hospital. The baby was at Children's Hospital, police said.

As of 10 p.m. PST, about 4 hours after the shooting, no arrests had been made, police said. Investigators were trying to determine what sparked the shooting spree.
