OAKLAND (KCBS)— Oakland Police Department says a 17-year-old is dead and a 22-year-old is recovering from a gunshot wound to his leg in a pair of shootings early Monday. Police are searching for a shooter and are trying to piece together a crime scene.

An unidentified teen was spotted on the street after midnight near Highland Hospital and died a short time later in the E.R. Not long after that a 22-year-old drove himself to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his leg. Police said he’s expected to survive.
