California Artist Fatally Shot While Making Peace Mural

An Oakland-based artist was shot and killed this week while creating a mural advocating peace, Inside Bay Area reports. 

Antonio Ramos, 27, was painting the mural in West Oakland at the Interstate 580 corridor with several others when a man who wasn’t in the group began touching the equipment. After Ramos and the man got into an argument, he shot Ramos and fled. The artist was working on the “Oakland Super Heroes Mural Project,” produced by Attitudinal Healing Connection, a nonprofit designed to fight violence in inner city areas with art and education.
