Hundreds of people spilled into an Oakland, California, street after hearing gunshots at a funeral, sparking a citywide emergency response, police said.
Police were called at about 12:20 p.m. (3:20 p.m. ET) to the Cosmopolitan Baptist Church, where shots had been fired, in the southern part of the city. The service was for Davante Riley of Oakland, an 18-year-old who was shot to death on April 18 - his birthday.
Authorities found roughly 300 people outside fighting on 85th Avenue, Oakland police spokeswoman Holly Joshi said. The police department and other agencies eventually dispersed the crowd with the help of the church.
Three people were arrested on firearms charges, and two others were taken into custody for resisting arrest, Joshi said. No serious injuries or shooting victims were reported, she added.
The incident marked the second time in less than three months that gunfire has erupted at an East Bay church, according to the Oakland Tribune.
Two teen brothers were wounded February 12 during services at a church in nearby Richmond.
