Emeryville Police were dispatched to 64th & Christie Avenue Saturday evening at approximately 9:32 p.m.

Witnesses reported hearing more than a dozen shots fired in front of the Emme Apartment complex in Northern Emeryville.

Prior to the gunfire, eyewitnesses reported seeing a group of subjects involved in a heated verbal exchange.

It was later determined that a 25-year-old male victim had been shot multiple times and self-transported to the hospital where he remains in stable condition. The suspect fled the area in an unknown dark colored vehicle.

The area was secured with police tape and officers remained on the scene for several hours afterward.

4/12 Update: Online “chatter” suggested the incident stemmed from an attempted carjacking but the Emeryville Police would not confirm this.

The Emeryville PD is seeking additional information or video from the scene. Please contact Detective McBroom at (510) 596-3732 or email jmcbroom@emeryville.org.

Since this is breaking news, we will update this story as new information becomes available.

  1. When will the crime rate reach a level, where rents start falling and people are fleeing Emeryville?????

    • Catch the criminals and put them behind bars so they will not be roaming freely, and FUND the police! Be tough on crimes and uphold the laws!

  2. Interesting to see a variant account of the incident on nextdoor app. I take it that the version here is based on the police report.
