Oakland Police officers were looking for two suspects Sunday morning following a deadly shooting just a couple of blocks from police headquarters near downtown Oakland.
Officers responded to a report of shots fired in the area of Ninth and Clay streets at about 3 a.m., Officer Kevin McDonald said.
When police arrived, officers found a man suffering from at least one, but possibly multiple gunshot wounds on the ground near a cross walk, surrounded by about 10 bullet shells.
The victim, described as a 37-year-old San Francisco resident, was treated by emergency medical responders but died at the scene, according to McDonald.
About half a block away from where the victim was discovered, investigators found an expensive sports car, an Aston Martin, with front end damage. The car appeared to belong to the victim according to reporters, but officers on scene would not confirm this.
KTVU learned later that morning that the shooting happened just as a nearby nightclub was letting out and investigators say the victim had gotten into a dispute with people in the suspect's vehicle.
Police told KTVU that officers were searching that morning for two suspects that were seen speeding away from the scene in a car. No other information on the suspects was available.
The victim's identity was not released pending notification of the man's relatives.
Police and Crime-Stoppers are offering a $10,000 reward for information in the case.
Anyone who might have witnessed the shooting was asked to contact the Oakland Police Department at (510) 238-3821.
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.
