On the night of June 6, 2020, Erik Salgado, a young Latino man, was shot and killed by three California Highway Patrol officers in Deep East Oakland. Erik and his girlfriend Briana Colombo, who was four months pregnant, were pulled over in what police claim was one of the 80 vehicles that were recently liberated in one of the many incidents of looting that occurred in the Bay Area as part of the national uprising against racist murders by the police. Eyewitnesses claim that CHP drew their assault rifles and unloaded 40 rounds into Erik’s vehicle, killing him at the scene and wounding his girlfriend Briana. It was later determined that Erik and Briana were unarmed.
