According to one witnesses, one male was communicating to another through the window of a stationary vehicle when as many as six shots rang out. “He was leaning in talking to the driver when the next thing I know, pow! pow! pow!” The injured man was located by EPD near 40th & San Pablo and taken away by ambulance to a local hospital. The victim was reportedly hit in the side and is said to be in critical condition.
No descriptions were provided for the two suspects and no one was taken into custody according to a press release provided by acting Captain Fred Dauer of the Emeryville PD.
It was the second daytime shooting in less than a week along San Pablo. Last Friday, a man was struck in the arm near 63rd at around 10am in North Oakland.
Emeryville police are asking residents to avoid the area while police are investigating. Any witnesses with information should contact the EPD at (510) 596-3700.
