Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums issued condolences yesterday on behalf of a city mourning the worst police tragedy in its history. Three veteran officers are dead and a fourth is clinging to life after being shot Saturday afternoon by a man who was being sought for violating his parole. The gunman is also dead. He was killed in a shootout with a police SWAT team that had cornered him in an apartment.

Host Liane Hansen speaks with NPR's Richard Gonzales with the latest news.
