OAKLAND (CBS SF) — A man was injured in a shooting by a known suspect in West Oakland Thursday night, according to police.

The victim was hit by gunfire at about 7:40 p.m. in the 2300 block of E. 15th Street, adjacent to Oakland Central Station, which has remained closed since the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989.
