9 injured in Halloween party shooting in Oakland

Nine people were hospitalized in stable condition Sunday morning at six Bay Area hospitals following a midnight shooting incident in downtown Oakland.

Police are investigating what led up to the shootings at 19th Street and Broadway inside Historic Sweets Ballroom.

The victims were attending a Halloween party billed as the "Annual Fright Fest, the biggest college party in the Bay Area." A ballroom employee told the Oakland Tribune there were at least 600 people attending the party.

The worker says there was a minor fight before the shooting, but he thought those involved had left.
