One man was killed and three more seriously injured in four separate shootings in Oakland Sunday afternoon and night, an Oakland police officer said.
Police responded shortly before 10:40 p.m. to a report of a shooting in the 1800 block of 9th Avenue, where they found a man suffering from at least one gunshot wound, Officer J. Moore said.
The victim was transported to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead from his injuries, Moore said.
The killing came after a string of violent incidents in Oakland late Sunday that started with a shooting just before 5 p.m. in the 8700 block of Hillside Avenue, Moore said. A man struck by the gunfire was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
Around 8:25 p.m., police received a report of a shooting in the 1000 block of 72nd Avenue, according to police. The victim in that shooting, also a male adult, was taken to a local hospital in critical condition.
Police responded around 9:10 p.m. to a report of a man shot in during a robbery in the 2600 block of Rawson Street, Moore said. Three armed suspects were seen fleeing the scene in a car and remain at large.
No further suspect information in connection with any of the shootings Sunday was available as of 2:30 a.m.
