At least two people were hurt and were treated by paramedics for facial and head injuries.

The teens all fled into the surrounding neighborhood near the Coliseum before any officers could arrive, police said.
The agency was in the process of gathering security camera footage of the suspects, but will not release it to the public as the suspects are all juveniles. “We are basically getting all the surveillance images that we have, and we’re going to be sharing them with Oakland Police, the schools, Oakland Housing Authority to try to identify the suspects,” said Trost.
