OAKLAND – Homicide investigators said today that they have little to go on as they try to solve the city's 73rd homicide, which occurred at an apartment complex in the western side of the city Sunday night.
Police spokesman George Phillips says residents at 680 24th St. called police at 11:57 p.m. Sunday and reported shots fired. When officers arrived they found that 58-year-old Brenda Williams, a resident of the apartment complex, had been shot and killed in the courtyard. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police have no suspects in custody and do not know what led to the death.
The killing is the 73rd in Oakland this year. There were 66 homicides in Oakland at this time last year.
