Mother of 4 Shot Dead Over Road Rage Incident

Perla Avina, a 30-year-old mother of 4, was shot dead during an apparent road rage altercation.  The shooting happened when Avina was riding in a Toyota Camry with her husband through Oakland’s Brookfield Village neighborhood.  The couple was returning from a shopping trip at Supermercado Mi Tierra.  Avina had a tradition of preparing posole for her family to enjoy the Raiders game together every other week.  Instead of gathering for a celebration, the family is now mourning her death.

According to police, an angry motorist fired multiple bullets into the couple’s vehicle, with one of the bullets striking Avina in the head as she sat in the passengers seat.  Avina’s husband, Luis Lopez Gallegos, drove her the few short blocks to their home to call paramedics, but Avina died in their driveway.  Gallegos reports that his wife worked as a medical receptionist and that the two have four children who range in age from 1 to 14-years-old.

The shooter has not been identified or apprehended.  About the shooter, Gallegos states, “He was a coward with a gun.  A young guy with a gun who doesn’t care about life.”  Gallegos says that the driver took issue with the way he was driving but does not remember all of the events that led up to his vehicle being sprayed with bullets.

A neighbor who was outside when Gallegos pulled into the family’s driveway, Dwayne Jackson, says that Gallegos yelled at him to call 911.  Jackson says he tried to give Avina CPR, but he knew that she “was gone.”  Jackson, who works as an auto mechanic, said that the timing of the incident, which was around noon on Sunday, when many people are returning from church, was awful.

CrimeStoppers has teamed up with the Oakland Police Department to offer up to a $30,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest of the person who shot Avina.
