OAKLAND (AP) — Oakland police said two people are dead and five hospitalized with gunshot wounds after a violent 6-hour period that began Friday evening and ran through early Saturday.

In the first incident, police said a gunman opened fire around 6:30 p.m. as a 24-year-old woman and her 17-year-old brother were putting the woman’s infant daughter in a car outside their home.

Police said Christopher Jones, a senior at Castlemont High School, was pronounced dead at a hospital. His sister was shot in the foot.

About three hours later, police said a woman was critically wounded when someone opened fire into a hotel room during a New Year’s celebration.

The third shooting took place after midnight outside an apartment complex. One person, who has not been identified, died at the scene. Three others were wounded.
