Four wounded in Oakland shootings Tuesday night

OAKLAND– Four people were shot within a two-hour period Tuesday night in different areas of the city, including two men in a drive-by attack, a woman hit by a stray bullet while waiting for a bus and a man walking home, authorities said.

All of the victims were in stable condition and the shootings do not appear to be related at this time, authorities said.

The drive-by shooting was reported about 8:32 pm Tuesday in the 9600 block of D Street in East Oakland.

Police responding to a ShotSpotter alert found a 21-year-old man shot in the arm and a 26-year-old man shot in the leg. They were both taken to a hospital.

Police said the men were standing outside when a vehicle drove by and an occupant began shooting at them before the vehicle drove off.

More than a dozen shell casings were found on the street, authorities said.

A motive for the shooting is under investigation.

Less than 10 minutes later at 8:39 pm a 34-year-old woman waiting for a bus in the 8600 block of International Boulevard was wounded in the leg, police said.

She was transported to a hospital.

Authorities said it appears the woman was hit by a stray bullet fired during a shooting involving several men on nearby Auseon Avenue where numerous shell casings were recovered.

No other injuries were reported and what prompted the shooting is under investigation. No arrests have been made.

About 10:30 pm an 18-year-old man was shot in the leg in the 3000 block of Linden Street in West Oakland while he was walking home.

The man told police he heard a loud noise and realized he was shot. He was able to make it to his home where a friend drove him to a hospital.

Police found numerous shell casings in the area of ​​the shooting and are trying to determine if the man wounded was the intended target of the shooter or was hit by a stray bullet.

Police and Crime Stoppers of Oakland are offering up to $10,000 in reward money in the double shooting and up to $5,000 in the other shootings for information leading to the arrests of the suspects. Anyone with information may call police at 510-238-3426 or Crime Stoppers at 510-777-8572.
