Via an EPD press release issued by Sergeant Fred Dauer:
Today at 1:36pm the Emeryville Police Department received several calls of gunshots in the area of 47th Street and Adeline Street. Witnesses reported a dark sedan fleeing the area. Officers responded quickly and located evidence of a shooting in the 1000 block of 47th Street. A short time later two gunshot victims, a male adult and female adult, arrived at a local hospital for treatment. Both victims had non-life threatening wounds.
A personal account from an anonymous witness via Nextdoor.com’s Golden Gate Neighborhood group:
I [witnessed] a drive-by shooting on 47th and Adeline, around 1:45 in the afternoon. I was jogging out of Temescal Creek Park with my dog, and saw two cars on 47th headed towards Adeline. I heard some bangs and glass shattered out the rear window of the first car — I thought they were shooting out the rear but it might have been the second car shooting at the first. First car took off north on Adeline and the second car (a teal Honda Civic) stopped at the corner, someone got out to grab something from the ground, and then got back in and drove south on Adeline.
I didn’t call it in, but stopped and talked with a woman at the Bakery Lofts leasing office (or whatever that is), who was on the phone calling it in, and the construction workers at the Basic Cafe space next door.
The incident is under active investigation. Anyone with information should contact Detective Ed Mayorga at (510) 596-3732.
