OAKLAND, Calif. — Five people were injured, including a 16-year-old girl, in four Oakland shootings that occurred within three and a half hours Saturday night, according to authorities.
According to authorities, the shootings do not appear to be connected at this time.
A shooting occurred outside the 5900 block of San Pablo Avenue in North Oakland at 7:53 p.m. Saturday, injuring two men.
A 36-year-old Oakland man had just left a liquor store when he was shot multiple times by another man who fled in a vehicle before police arrived.
Authorities said a 34-year-old El Sobrante man was hit in the leg by stray bullets while waiting to pick up food from a nearby restaurant.
Both men were in good health. The shooting’s motivation is being investigated. There have been no arrests announced.
Authorities said the 16-year-old girl was shot in the foot in an apparent drive-by shooting near 23rd Street and Telegraph Avenue around 10:40 p.m.
Authorities said the girl had been attending a party in the area and was outside near a group of people when someone in a passing vehicle began shooting at them. The girl was the only one who was hit. She was in a hospital in stable condition.
Police are investigating the shooting’s motive and whether the girl was the intended target. There have been no arrests.
Another drive-by shooting occurred around 7:40 p.m. when a 50-year-old woman was walking in the 3900 block of Webster Street. She was in a hospital in stable condition.
Police believe the shooting was the result of a dispute the woman had with another person a few minutes earlier at a nearby gas station. Police believe the shooter was connected to the person with whom the victim had a dispute. There have been no arrests.
A 57-year-old man was found shot in the leg near 13th Street and Mandela Parkway in West Oakland around 7:30 p.m. The man was taken to the hospital, but police have yet to interview him in order to determine who shot him and why.
