Arriving at the shooting scene nearby, officers discovered a 19-year-old Oakland woman and a 25-year-old Berkeley man suffering from fatal gunshot wounds.

The East Bay Times reported the woman — whose identity was not released — was found fatally shot in the car while the male had attempted to flee the gunman but was fatally shot on the street.
