OAKLAND -- A San Leandro man was shot to death and two other people, including a woman watching illegal fireworks, were wounded in separate shootings within three hours late Thursday and early Friday in East Oakland, police said.
Mustafa Abushi, 28, was found shot to death at 12:29 a.m. Friday inside his car that had crashed at the intersection of 92nd Avenue and Cherry Street.

No motive has been established and no arrests have been made.
Police said they were told Abushi worked as a clerk at a family-owned liquor store and was the father of two children.
A shooting at 9:48 p.m. Thursday in the 5700 block of Elizabeth Street near Seminary Avenue left a 23-year-old Oakland man in grave condition on life support, authorities said.
The man's name was not released.
Police responding to reports of a man down found the victim, who lives in another part of Oakland.
Police don't have a motive yet and no arrests have been made.
At 10:30 p.m. Thursday, a woman was shot in the 2400 block of 106th Avenue.
Police said she was shot while watching illegal fireworks being set off in the area.
It was not immediately known if the woman was hit by an errant bullet or was the intended target. A nearby car was also hit by gunfire but no other injuries were reported.
