A shooting occurred nearby the Golden State Warriors’ NBA Championship Parade as it passed by Lake Merritt in Oakland, California, on Friday. Three people were reportedly shot. Police clarified that the gunshots were fired on the other side of the lake, not within the parade itself.
A bystander uploaded a video on Twitter of what appears to be the aftermath of the scene. (Note: There's strong language below that might be offensive to some.)

Oakland has historically been one of the most violent cities in California, but the city's homicide rate and overall crime rate have dropped somewhat in recent years. And for the most part, Warriors fans were on their best behavior Friday.
