1 Killed, 7 Hurt In 5 Separate Weekend Shootings In Oakland
OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Over the weekend, one man was shot and killed while seven others suffered various injuries in four other separate shootings throughout Oakland, according to police.
The man fatally shot in the 2900 block of High Street on Saturday afternoon was identified as 50-year-old Oakland resident Leo Dunson, police spokeswoman Holly Joshi said.
Officers found Dunson suffering from a gunshot wound around 2:20 p.m. Efforts by emergency medical personnel failed and he was pronounced dead at the scene of the shooting.
The shooting is under investigation with the motive for the murder unknown, Joshi said.
Sunday afternoon, a man suffered critical injuries after a shooting near the 1400 block of Seminary Avenue at about 4:35 p.m., Oakland police Officer J. Moore said.
Responding paramedics took the man to a hospital to undergo surgery for his gunshot wounds, he said.
The victim’s injuries were last known to be critical, but it was unclear if they are life threatening, Moore said.
Early Sunday morning, two separate shootings occurred before 2 a.m.
The first happened at about 1:22 a.m. in the area of 59th and Genoa Streets. Officers found two men suffering from gunshot wounds, with what appear to be non-life threatening injuries, Joshi said.
Just before 2 a.m., a shooting outside of a nightclub in the 1200 block of Webster Avenue left one man in critical condition and hospitalized two other men, Moore said.
Two of the gunshot victims were taken to the hospital in stable condition. The third man was scheduled to undergo surgery for critical injuries at about 3:30 a.m. after he was found shot at 1:55 a.m., Officer Kevin McDonald said.
Also, on Saturday night around 10:30 p.m. officers found a 52-year-old Oakland man shot in the driveway of his apartment complex as he was returning home in the 2400 block of 90th Avenue, Joshi said.
The gunshot victim was taken to a local hospital in stable condition for treatment, Moore said.
No suspects have been found in any of the shootings, according to police.
