Around 8:15 p.m. in East Oakland an OPD officer patrolling near 97th Avenue and International Boulevard witnessed a vehicle driving recklessly. The vehicle also matched the description of a vehicle that had been carjacked a few hours earlier.
The OPD officer tried to pull the vehicle over, but instead the driver fled. The officer followed the vehicle until the OPD helicopter, also known as Argus, began pursuit. Argus followed to the 300 block of 105th Avenue and the vehicle came to a stop. The occupants then exited the vehicle and fled on foot to a nearby creek.
