OAKLAND -- An Oakland public schools police officer fatally shot a 20-year-old man Saturday night who was stabbing another school officer with a screwdriver, authorities said.
Raheim Brown had addresses in San Francisco, Daly City and Alameda, authorities said.
The names of the officers were not released.
Brown was inside a Honda that had been stolen earlier in the evening in Oakland, officials said, and a pistol was also found inside the vehicle not far from where the man was.
A 20-year-old woman, an Alameda resident who was driving the car, was not hurt. She was arrested Sunday on suspicion of auto theft and possession of stolen property.
The incident happened about 9:15 p.m. Saturday on Joaquin Miller Road near Crane Way.
The site is on the same side of the street as Joaquin Miller Park, where Skyline High School students were attending a dance at a park facility.
The school officers were on patrol in the area to prevent people from crashing the dance as well as to stop other illegal activity, said Peter Sarna, the school district's police chief.
The officers saw the Honda parked with its hazard lights on and went to investigate. They did not know at the time that the car had been stolen. Authorities said the man and woman had no connection to the school and apparently had just coincidentally parked there.
The man was sitting in the front passenger seat and began fighting with the school officer who
The other school officer, who was on the driver's side, told investigators that he shot the man when he saw him stabbing his fellow officer with a screwdriver. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
The officer who was stabbed did not require medical treatment. It is thought that his protective vest absorbed some of the screwdriver's thrusts.
It was the first time in recent memory anyone could recall an Oakland school police officer being involved in a fatal shooting. A school police officer was shot to death during a car stop in 1995.
Sarna promised the investigation into the shooting would be "thorough and transparent." The shooting is being investigated by the Oakland police homicide unit and the Alameda County District Attorney's Office. The school district will also conduct an investigation, Sarna said.
