Aya Nakano, of Emeryville, California, would have turned 23 years old Thursday, police said.
Investigators say Nakano’s vehicle was rear-ended. Nakano and the two suspects got into a confrontation after they pulled over, and Nakano was shot and killed. The suspects then sped away, investigators say.
Nakano graduated from the UO College of Arts and Sciences in 2012 with a degree in sociology.
Oakland Police are asking anyone who may have seen what happened or the suspect’s newer, silver four-door sedan to call (510) 238-3821. A reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.
