At around 1 p.m., police told KCBS Radio they were responding to a shooting on the 8200 block of Fontaine Street in East Oakland.

Students at Sojourner Truth Independent Study were sent home for the day. At least three other schools are located nearby, including Bay Area Technology School, Rudsdale Continuation School and Rudsdale Newsome High School.

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf reported that all six victims are adults and they are being treated for injuries at hospitals now. The school is clear and children are being reunited with their parents.

"Today's gun violence at Sojourner Truth school shocks the soul," she wrote in a tweet. "The unbridled access to firearms in our country is inexcusable."

Both the eastbound and westbound Keller offramps from Interstate-580 are shut down due to the shooting.
