Aya Nakano, a recent University of Oregon graduate, was fatally shot in North Oakland late Wednesday, one hour before his 23rd birthday, after getting into a confrontation with two suspects who rear-ended his car.

Oakland police spokeswoman Johnna Watson said the victim had recently graduated from a college in Oregon and was driving back to his Emeryville home after playing basketball with friends at a UC Berkeley gym when the collision occurred about 11 p.m.

He was driving west on Stanford Avenue near Market Street when he was rear-ended by the suspects’ car, Watson said.

The victim then “did the right thing” and turned left onto southbound Market Street then pulled over at a bus stop in the 5800 block of Market, near ASA Liquors, Watson said. Source:  CBS San Francisco

Aya Nakano’s death is Oakland’s 45th homicide of the year. Police are offering up to $10,000 in reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.
