Man Cleared of 10 Charges in Oakland Shoot-out

More than 2,500 visitors from out of town converged upon a local picnic ground in Oakland in celebration of a Jamaican holiday when gunfire erupted from all directions, killing three people and injuring nineteen in the melee.  F.G.  was accused by several witnesses of firing weapons into the crowd, including at an off-duty police officer. Over thirty weapons were eventually found strewn around the park.  Upon cross-examination, I was able to show that the witness testimony was flawed and contradictory, and none of the ballistics recovered matched the weapons possessed by my client.   However, F.G. was charged with three counts of attempted murder and aggravated assault.  After trial, he was found guilty of illegal possession of a weapon and acquitted on all other charges. – Bergen Record Newspaper
