The wounded victim drove his car to a gas station near Lake Merritt, where witnesses in the 3200 block of Lakeshore Avenue spotted him and called police.

The man was taken to be treated for at least one gunshot wound, and remains in the hospital in stable condition, police said.

Officers are still searching for the suspect or suspects, and a motive for the shooting was not immediately known.
