Man dragged to death behind car in one of two Oakland killings

Oakland musician Dave Deporis was tragically killed yesterday afternoon while pursuing a thief who stole his computer, SFGate reports.

Witnesses said Deporis was sitting outside at an Oakland cafe Wednesday working on his laptop when someone grabbed it and jumped in a waiting vehicle.

The 40-year-old desperate not to lose his belongings, chased after the assailant before grabbing hold of the side of the vehicle before he was briefly dragged along the road and then run over. Deporis was taken to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead, police said.

Oakland Crime Stoppers and police are offering up to $10,000 in reward money for information leading to the arrest of the killer in the West Oakland shooting.

As Pitchfork points out, Regina Spektor and My Brightest Diamond shared memories of seeing Deporis perform in The Sidewalk Cafe in NYC's East Village, and Kimya Dawson shared a full set of his from the venue on Twitter.
