Shooting investigation near Children's Hospital in Oakland

Oakland Police Department is investigating a shooting near UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital on Wednesday afternoon.

Police said it happened in the area of 52nd Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Way just after 3:20 p.m. Police said minutes after the shooting they received a call from "an area hospital" reporting a walk-in gunshot wound victim. The victim was listed in stable condition, according to police. 

According to a doctor at the hospital, who spoke to KTVU anonymously to protect their job, they heard the gunshots. 

Following the reported shooting, a code silver alert was initiated, instructing everyone to remain indoors, they also said.

The doctor said they were on a call with colleagues who were upstairs and saw the shooters with guns. A colleague took photos and saw the shooters run across the street and abandon a car. They said it was a child shot in the arm who was admitted to Children's Hospital. They added that an older man, who was in the car, was shot in the leg. 

It is unclear if this was a targeted incident.
