OAKLAND, Calif. —
One man was injured in a shooting over a dice game in an Oakland backyard Friday afternoon, police said.
A group of people were playing dice and gambling in a backyard in the 1700 block of 12th Street at around 2 p.m.
One man in the group pistol-whipped one of the players, then turned the gun around and shot the victim several times in the leg.
The suspect took the money from the game that was lying on the ground and ran away, according to police.
A few minutes later, two armed men pointed guns at each other on a street in East Oakland in an unrelated incident.
The two suspects squared off in the 9800 block of Holly Street at 2:18 p.m., police said.
One of the suspects shot at the other, but missed, and hit a parked car behind him.
The two suspects then got into separate cars and fled.
No suspects were in custody in either incident Saturday.
