Police said a man and a woman were with their two young children and were visiting Oakland to feed the homeless. Police said the family had just pulled to the side of the road when an unknown suspect pulled up alongside them and began shooting.
Police said the woman's injuries were considered minor, but the man suffered a threatening wound and remains in critical condition at an area hospital Wednesday.
Police sources told NBC Bay Area's Jodi Hernandez that the couple's three-year-old child was also shot. That little girl suffered a bullet wound that went through her arm.
Hernandez also spoke to a homeless person in Oakland Wedneday who told her that the victims were well known in the homeless community. He said they often passed out food in East Oakland. Tony Wright said they were handing out fish and chips overnight when the shooting happened.
