OAKLAND — Oakland police Monday were continuing to investigate an officer-involved shooting that happened Sunday evening in North Oakland where a man with a gun was fatally shot, authorities said.
Neither police nor the Alameda County coroner’s bureau have released the man’s name or whether he lived in the area.
The shooting happened about 6:15 p.m. Sunday between a house and apartment building in the 900 block of 40th Street between Adeline and Market streets, a few blocks from the MacArthur BART station.
Firefighters were the first on the scene, and said that they saw that the man was armed with a gun and notified police.
Police said uniformed officers arrived on the scene and saw the man was armed with a handgun.
Officers began giving the man verbal commands. Police said when he did not comply, he was shot by officers.
Despite emergency life-saving measures, the man was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said a gun was recovered.
Police have not said how many officers fired their weapons or released their names. KRON-TV reported that authorities said four officers had responded to a report of a man with a weapon.
In addition to police Criminal Investigation and Internal Affairs divisions investigating the shooting, the Alameda County district attorney’s office is also conducting a separate investigation.
Oakland police’s last fatal officer-involved shooting was  Feb. 17, 2017, when a suspected sniper using a rifle was killed in the 9500 block of Las Vegas Avenue in East Oakland.
