OAKLAND — Four males were injured during a spate of shootings that happened Monday afternoon within less than three hours of one another.
None were seriously injured, but police did not release the their names.
"We'd definitely like to take the shooters off the street before something really bad happens," Sgt. Gregg Dutton said.
In the first incident, an adult man and juvenile male were wounded in a drive-by shooting at 4:12 p.m. on the 1500 block of 23rd Avenue. Both were in stable condition late Monday afternoon.
The second shooting happened at
5:35 p.m. on the 2700 block of East 10th Street. A teenage male riding a bicycle was shot in the abdomen by a gunman who fled on foot to a nearby car, according to police. The victim was in stable condition late Monday afternoon.
The vehicles' descriptions in the first two shootings were not identical, and police said it was too early to determine whether any of the incidents were connected or gang-related.
Less than an hour later, a juvenile male was shot about 6 p.m. near East 28th Street and Bellavista Avenue.
