1 Of 6 Men Shot In Oakland In 3-Hour Span Dies At Hospital

OAKLAND (CBS/AP) — One of six men wounded in a spate of shootings around east Oakland within a span of 90 minutes has died.

Police say 20-year-old Ezra Flowers died at Highland Hospital Friday night, a day after he was confronted and shot by someone on a sidewalk outside a store he had just left.

Police have not established a possible motive for the shooting or made any arrests.

Flowers’ shooting was preceded by two other shootings. The first occurred about 90 minutes earlier and left three men, one 18 and two 19, wounded.

In the second incident, two men were shot while they sat in a car.

Police do not believe the shootings are related.  The other victims are expected to recover.

A $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the shooters.
