Artist shot, killed while painting anti-violence mural.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — An artist was shot and killed in Oakland while he was helping to paint a street-side mural for a group that works to spread peace and stop violence, authorities said. 27-year-old Antonio Ramos was painting a community mural under an Interstate 580 overpass in West Oakland on Tuesday when he was shot at around 10:30 a.m., according to Police reports.

Police spokeswoman Johnna Watson said Wednesday officers were searching for the shooter as friends mourned Antonio Ramos, 27, during a vigil at the mural site. As the Chronicle writes, the superheroes project pairs AHC professional muralists such as Ramos with local middle school students, envisioning them as superheroes.
