OAKLAND, Calif. — California Highway Patrol officers will patrol the streets of Oakland to combat a recent wave of homicides that included the slaying of journalist Chauncey Bailey, the governor's office announced Tuesday.

The extra officers will join Oakland police in coming days in response to a request from Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums. Since Bailey was gunned down in broad daylight on a downtown street Thursday, seven other people have been killed in Oakland.
