Nathan Taylor Shot and Killed Near MacArthur BART in Oakland Yesterday
Shooting near MacArthur BART station leaves man dead 20-year old Nathan Taylor was shot and killed near the BART station that I frequently take to work yesterday. He was shot in broad daylight at 1:20pm in the afternoon on Apgar Street. I park my car on Apgar Street sometimes when I leave it there during the day.
The above photo is taken from the MacArthur BART platform.
There is an Oakland public school, The Village Acadamy, about 2 blocks from where Taylor was shot and killed.
When is Ron Dellums, Oakland’s mayor, going to do something about getting guns off of the streets of Oakland? When are we as a society going to get tougher on criminals and gangsters who posses illegal guns?
We need to take the guns away from the criminals. We need to pass legislation that would require any criminal caught possessing an illegal gun to get a mandatory life in prison sentence with no possibility for parole.
It’s sad to think that a passing school child or father coming home from work on the BART could have gotten caught in the crossfire of the bullets that continue to fly over all areas of Oakland.
