OAKLAND, Calif. (WCJB) -- The family of a man shot and killed by Oakland police claim he never pointed a gun at an officer, but authorities say witnesses have a different story. Alan Dwayne Blueford was killed early Sunday morning after being chased by police.
According to police, two officers thought one of the men had a gun, so they decided to stop them and that's when all three took off running. One officer chased Blueford for about two blocks. The officer fired at Blueford four times, according to the coroner's report. Blueford was hit in the front of his body with three rounds. Investigators believe a fourth round hit the officer in his own foot.
The Oakland Police Department and the Alameda County District Attorney's Office are investigating the fatal shooting.

Oakland, CA -- Tony Jones, the cousin of Oscar Grant, is recuperating from a police-inflicted bullet wound in the same hospital where his cousin died after being shot by an officer three years ago. Grant, 22, was shot on New Year's Day 2009 by a Bay Area Rapid Transit officer on a platform in Oakland after he was one of several people restrained by officers responding to reports of a fight. Grant, who was unarmed, died from his wounds. Officer Johannes Mehserle was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and served half of a two-year sentence. The Mehserle verdict sparked riots in Oakland, where many wanted the officer found guilty of second-degree murder. Mehserle testified during his trial he had meant to use his stun gun to restrain Grant.
Oakland Police have said very little about the Sunday night incident in which Jones, 24, was shot in the lower back while running from officers after his vehicle had been pulled over for being associated with a robbery.

"THESE ARE HARD times for the city of Oakland. To get out of a deep financial hole, the City Council set to cut libraries and museums, eliminate civilian police department employees, slash public works and make other cuts in services that our residents need. In the middle of this financial crisis, a Pleasant Hill law firm has decided to hit Oakland taxpayers with a lawsuit that amounts to little more than a shakedown. The class action lawsuit, instigated by Mike Rains, an attorney best known for representing Barry Bonds [and the Oakland Riders (Corrupt Oakland Police Officers who planted evidence on Oakland Citizens)], would force Oakland to pay millions of extra dollars in overtime to cops — but not for patrolling the city's streets or investigating crimes." Incredibly, three of the lead plaintiffs [Police Officers] were fired for cause: • One for threatening an elderly couple with his service handgun; • one for watching pornography while on duty; and • one for providing police investigation information to the criminals under investigation. Yet plaintiffs' attorneys want Oakland residents to pay these three former officers for the time they spent putting on and taking off their uniforms. • One plaintiff in the lawsuit, a sergeant making $115,000 [per year with a high school diploma], is demanding overtime for the few minutes of reading e-mail and making phone calls he does before his shift. At the same time, he admits making personal phone calls and reading personal e-mail on the city's dime. • This same sergeant drives an unmarked police vehicle to and from his home in Concord — the city pays for gas and repairs. Once a week, however, he spends about 11 minutes dropping off paperwork on his way home. He is in court demanding overtime for those 11 minutes. • One veteran testified that it takes him 30 minutes to put on his uniform — including 10 minutes to pin on his medals. One lieutenant wants overtime for the few seconds he spends shaking his pepper spray before each shift. See: "Police's lawsuit against Oakland is shameful" The Chauncey Bailey Murder and OPD's Homicide Unit: "The [Oakland Polices' Homicide Division] lead detective [Sgt. Derwin Longmire] (Pictured Right) assigned to investigate journalist Chauncey Bailey's killing ignored evidence linking Yusuf Bey IV, former leader of Your Black Muslim Bakery, to a role in the killing and interfered in two other unrelated felony cases involving Bey IV, according to an investigation by the Chauncey Bailey Project."
