Oakland Police responding to a report of a car crash on Brookdale Avenue at 9:05 p.m. Tuesday found a 40-year-old Berkeley woman suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
Aberial Denise Bradley had apparently lost control of her late-model car after the shooting, and the vehicle slammed into a light pole.
Oakland Police spokesperson Officer Roland A. Holmgren said Bradley was rushed to Highland Hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 9:42 p.m.
Holmgren was able to provide little additional information, but a published account said Bradley had dropped off her 9-year-old son with a relative a half hour before the shooting. Holmgren asked anyone with information about the crime to call Oakland Police at 238-3821..
