A man fatally shot Sunday as he sat inside a car on an East Oakland street has been identified as 31-year-old John Sunny Davis, police said today.
Davis, of Oakland, was one of three men killed during separate shootings in the city that took place over a span of about 10 hours. No arrests and no motives have been announced in the slayings, which remain under investigation, Sgt. Arturo Bautista said Tuesday.
It is not known if the fatal Oakland shootings were connected.
The names of the other two men, shot by unknown suspects in different parts of the city, have not been released pending notification of family, Bautista said.
Davis -- the first to be gunned down, was shot about 10:05 a.m. in the 2400 block of 68th Avenue near his home.
Following the shooting, a gunman fled in a vehicle with other occupants, police said.
Davis died about 30 minutes later at a hospital.
