Reward Offered For Information In Shooting Of Oakland 2-Year-Old
OAKLAND (CBS SF) – A $10,000 reward has been offered to help catch the gunman who shot a 2-year-old boy on Saturday in Oakland.
The boy was shot in the arm as he stood near International Blvd. and Seminary Ave., only a few blocks away from where a 3-year-old boy was fatally shot earlier this month.
The boy was reportedly walking with three adults around 3:30 p.m. Saturday when the group was fied upon. The victim was taken to a local hospital, and is expected to survive. Nobody else was injured in the incident.
A motive for the shooting was not immediately clear, and no arrests had been made as of Monday morning.
The shooting was only blocks away from where 3-year-old Carlos Navas was shot and killed on Aug. 8. Police have said that shooting was gang-related, and that two other men wounded in the shooting were the intended targets.
