Multiple people hurt in East Oakland shootings

OAKLAND — Police were at the scene of separate shootings in East Oakland neighborhoods that left multiple people suffering from gunshot wounds, authorities said Thursday.

Just before 6:15 p.m., police responded to reports of ShotSpotter activity near Royal Ann Street and 107th Avenue in the city’s North Stonehurst neighborhood.

When officers arrived, they found signs of blood at the scene in the 10700 block of Apricot Street, and soon found a 22-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound to a thigh.

Casings dotted the spaces between parked vehicles along the closed stretch of 107th Avenue between Royal Ann Street and E Street while blood stained every few squares on the sidewalk. Several neighbors along 107th were asked to park elsewhere and escorted by officers through the scene to their homes.

After receiving care, he was taken to a hospital. His condition was not available Thursday night.

Police were not immediately able to confirm that at least two other people suffering from gunshot wounds managed to obtain their own transportation to another hospital.

Shortly after 8:15 p.m., officers responded to ShotSpotter reports near 67th and Bancroft avenues in the city’s Havenscourt neighborhood, and arrived to find a woman who sustained a pistol-whipping and a man suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest.

Firefighters also arrived at the scene, assisting in providing medical care before the two were taken to separate hospitals. Their conditions were not immediately available.

For information leading to the arrest of a suspect, police are offering up to $5,000 in the shooting. Anyone with information may call police at 510-238-3426 or Crime Stoppers of Oakland at 510-777-8572.
