Police have not named any suspects as they continued their investigation into the killing of two teenage girls in East Oakland early Sunday morning. Meanwhile, neighbors who knew the victims are consumed with grief.

Around 5:30 a.m. Sunday, 16-year-old Bobbie Sartain and her best friend, 15-year-old Raquel Gerstel, were gunned down near the corner of Minna and Brookdale avenues. Authorities said at least 36 bullets were fired.

Jed Hamilton, who lives across the street, was woken up by his mother during the gunfire. Hamilton and several other neighbors tried to help Sartain and Gerstel, but the pair died.
