OAKLAND — A mass shooting at a gas station in Oakland Monday night killed at least one person and injured at least seven others, the second mass shooting in the Bay Area on Monday and the third in California in three days.

The shooting was reported just after 6 p.m. on the 5900 block of MacArthur Boulevard on Seminary Avenue, adjacent to the grounds of Mills College. Oakland Police said officers were investigating a ShotSpotter activation in the area and learned there had been a shooting between multiple individuals.

The shooting occurred while a music video was being taped in the area, according to an independent reporter at the scene who provided video footage to CBS News Bay Area.

Officers who arrived at the scene found no casualties but located a number of casings. The department later learned that several gunshot victims self-transported to area hospitals.
