OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - An off-duty paramedic who was shot in the head while waiting at a stop sign in Oakland shortly after visiting his father has died.
The Oakland Tribune reports 34-year-old Quinn Boyer died at a hospital late Thursday.
Boyer took his dad to a doctor's appointment on Tuesday when someone in another car shot him. Boyer hit the gas pedal after he was shot that sent his car over a median strip and down a ravine.
No arrests have been made. Police haven't said whether the shooter knew Boyer or if it was an attempted robbery gone bad.
Boyer had been a paramedic since 2008 and had worked for Santa Clara County Ambulance for the past two years. He is the 24th person killed in Oakland this year.
