The city of Oakland has been rocked once again by gun violence with police investigating four separate shootings that took place since 9 p.m. Wednesday night.
The first shooting happened at about 9:15 p.m. Wednesday evening at 44th Avenue and International Boulevard near a taco truck.
A group of men standing next to the truck shot at a passing car. Both the shooter and that car were gone before officers arrived on scene.
There were no reports of anyone shot or vehicle damage. KTVU was told Ash Wednesday services at a nearby church had just ended and a number of children were in the area.
Just over two hours later, a man was shot at around 11:30 p.m. on Davis Street near 34th Street.
Thursday morning, a man was found shot sitting in his parked Chevy Camero at around 5 a.m. at 3th and Adeline streets. It had not been determined if the man was shot elsewhere before driving to the location where he was found or if he was shot there.
The victim was taken to the hospital. His condition was not known.
The final shooting took place at 8:20 a.m. Thursday morning when a bicyclist was gunned down at 63rd and Market streets.
The recent incidents come just days after the holiday weekend racked up 12 other shootings that left three dead and eight injured.
Police said it currently didn't appear that any of these crimes were connected. That may make them harder to solve and the trend of violence in Oakland harder to stop.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
