OAKLAND -- Three people were injured in a shooting outside a nightclub early Monday morning, the latest violence over a bloody 48-hour period in the city, police said.

A fourth person was shot during a robbery about an hour later and is expected to survive, according to police.

Three of the victims -- two women and a man -- were shot outside a nightclub after gunfire erupted outside the Shadow Ultra Lounge at 341 13th St., police said.

The nightclub shooting happened about 12:45 a.m. during a party where about 300 people had gathered, Oakland police Lt. Brandon Wehrly said. Security enlisted for the party escorted a few people from the party after a fight broke out, Wehrly said.

After the ejections, people were standing outside the club on the sidewalk when someone fired a gun into the crowd, Wehrly said. Police did not have any suspects.

Wounded and expected to survive were a 23-year-old woman shot in the leg, a 20-year-old woman shot in the buttocks and a 29-year-old man on duty as a security guard who was shot in the elbow, Wehrly said.

A furniture store next door also was hit with a round of bullets, but nobody was inside, police said. The shooter may have escaped in a car, police said. Police did not have any other information on potential suspects.

In a later shooting, a 53-year-old man was shot in the foot at 1:37 a.m. after he had exited his car at 16th Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to help a person along the side of the road, police said. The man was outside his vehicle when another man approached him, demanded his valuables and shot him in the foot, before taking the man's car, Wehrly said.

The shootings were the latest violence in a 48-hour stretch that included the city's 43rd homicide of the year -- a 17-year-old boy was slain in the 9100 block of International Boulevard about 1:45 p.m. Sunday -- and shootings that wounded nine other people, including a 25-year-old Walnut Creek woman who was in critical condition after gunfire broke out at a road sideshow early Saturday morning.
