Man Critically Hurt In Oakland Shooting; 1 Arrested

OAKLAND (BCN) – Oakland police arrested a 19-year-old man and were seeking three other suspects in a shooting near Highland Hospital Tuesday evening that left one person critically injured, a police spokesman said Wednesday.

The shooting was reported at about 5:55 p.m. Tuesday in the 3100 block of East 31st Street, Oakland police Officer Jeff Thomason said.

An officer arrived to find the victim, a 22-year-old Oakland man, suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to Highland Hospital, less than a block away, and was in critical condition Wednesday morning, Thomason said.

While attending to the wounded man, the officer saw a suspect who shot at a second victim before running away, Thomason said. He did not know if the second victim was hit by the gunfire.

The suspect was eventually apprehended and identified as Malvin Bell, a San Leandro resident.

Bell was booked into Alameda County Jail on suspicion of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon, Thomason said.

Three other suspects are still at large. Thomason did not have any description of the suspects as of Wednesday morning.
