One person was killed and seven others were injured in a shooting Monday night in Oakland, police said.

The incident was reported just after 6 p.m. in the 5900 block of MacArthur Boulevard, where officers responded to an alert from ShotSpotter, a program that flags authorities when the sound of gunfire is detected.

Police at the scene found spent bullet casings but no victims, Officer Kim Armstead said in a video statement posted to Twitter. Soon after, however, police learned of victims who had taken themselves to local hospitals.

Oakland Police Chief LeRonne Armstrong was placed on administrative leave following an outside report that found the department had mishandled cases of officer misconduct.
