Oakland: Woman Walking to Store Shot, Killed in Gun Battle
A woman walking to a store in East Oakland was struck and killed during a gun battle between people on the other side of the street Wednesday night, police said.
The woman was walking with a relative and was hit by an errant bullet at 6:53 p.m. in the 9100 block of International Boulevard, police said. The other person was not injured, police said.
Police did not identify the victim, but a longtime friend of the woman identified her as Ramona Rochelle Foreman, 49.
“She was a good person. She never did anything to anybody,” said Al Roberts, who has a 30-year-old daughter and a 32-year-old son and three grandchildren with the victim. “I can’t believe it’s her lying there.”
Foreman lived about four blocks away from the store, Roberts said, and took care of her elderly mother.
