In brief: Eight wounded in Oakland shooting

 

OAKLAND, Calif. – Oakland police say a 1-year-old child and seven other victims are in the hospital after being shot in the city’s West Oakland neighborhood.

Oakland police spokeswoman Ofc. Johnna Watson says the shootings happened just after 6 p.m. Monday in an area not far from the Nimitz Freeway and the U.S. Post Office. Watson says officers arriving on the scene learned that the victims had been taken to nearby hospitals. She said information on any suspects, a possible motive or the victims’ conditions was not immediately available.

Montana copper heiress left two wills

NEW YORK – Months after Montana copper mining heiress Huguette Clark died in New York comes a big surprise: a will in which she leaves almost everything to her relatives and another in which they get nothing.

The childless Clark died in May at age 104. On Monday, relatives filed a will signed in March 2005. It leaves much of her $400 million fortune to relatives. But five months earlier, her lawyer and accountant filed another will, from April 2005. It gives her family nothing and leaves her money mainly to charity and her nurse.

Clark’s relatives accuse attorney Wallace Bock and accountant Irving Kamsler of plundering her fortune.

Bock’s lawyer says Bock carried out Clark’s wishes. A lawyer for Kamsler hasn’t returned a call seeking comment.
