    RIP Mr. Bailey.

    Anyone here work with him? Was he on a controversial beat or had he written any controversial stories recently? Sadly, this is the first "motive" that popped into my head, though I hate to speculate. This is shocking, to say the least ...

    My best to his family, friends and co-workers.

    I worked with Chauncey and he was a good guy, though I didn't know him well. He knew the area and was very involved in the community. It's a big loss for the people of Oakland. What a waste.

    You had to have known him. Chauncey didn't mince words.

    If any sort of memorial fund is started for him, please let us know.

    Given the police chief and deputy police chief were both on scene, I'm guessing it won't take too long for them to find the shooter.

    Hopefully they find his killer, because this is a pretty messed up situation and one I have wondered about before. Because all of us have written articles that have made people very angry and I have always been afraid of seeing those people in public and have them beat the shit out of me or something.
