A Berkeley single mother was fatally

shot in her car in Oakland on

Tuesday night, Oakland police said.

Police found Aberial Denise

Bradley, who would have turned 41 on

Sunday, dying from gunshot wounds

in her car at 9:05 p.m. on the 2800

block of Brookdale Avenue, said

Oakland police Sgt. Brian Medeiros.

Bradley’s car had collided with a

utility pole, Medeiros said, though he

did not know if Bradley was shot while

driving or after the car crashed.

After being transported to Highland

General Hospital in Oakland, Bradley

was pronounced dead at 9:44 p.m,

Medeiros said.

Medeiros said Bradley, who worked

as a home care nurse for elderly

patients, was shot at close range multiple

times, though he would not say

where on her body she was shot.

Police had responded to calls from

residents of the area who reported

hearing gunshots and the sound of a

vehicle crashing, Medeiros said.

Bradley had dropped her 8-year-old

son off at a relative’s house about half

an hour before she was found in her

car, Medeiros said.

Police said they do not know why

Bradley had been in the East Oakland

area where she was found and have

not established a motive for her shooting.

“We’re keeping an open mind to

everything,” Medeiros said. “We’re just

trying to backtrack her activities for

that day, to talk to anybody to shed

some light.”

Bradley’s death marks Oakland’s

34th homicide of the year. At this

point last year, there had been 14

homicides in Oakland.

The Oakland Police Department

and Crime Stoppers of Oakland are

offering a reward of up to $10,000 for

information about the case.
