Man Shot in Oakland While Feeding the Homeless Dies

Ugh, this is so terrible: Paris Powell — who was shot in the head early Wednesday morning while delivering food to the homeless with his pregnant wife and two young stepdaughters — has died, according to the Chron. Powell — who ran a nonprofit for homeless people and battered women and who was known for driving around Oakland delivering hot meals — was taken off life support late last night, according again to the Chron. The motive for the shooting is unknown and no arrests have been made.
