OAKLAND (CBS SF) — A man was injured in a shooting in East Oakland Sunday night, a police officer said.

Police responded around 8:40 p.m. to reports of a shooting in the 8700 block of Birch Street, where they found a male adult victim suffering from a gunshot wound, Officer J. Moore said.

The victim was transported to a hospital in stable condition.

Moore said two suspects, one who was armed, were seen fleeing the area in a vehicle. No arrests have been made.

The shooting came five hours after another shooting in East Oakland left a 15-year-old girl dead and a 14-year-old boy with non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators are trying to establish a motive for the shooting and to locate the suspect.
