OAKLAND -- Two men were shot in a seven-hour span Saturday morning, one in East Oakland and the other in a well known commercial area near Kaiser Hospital.
Both men will recover from their wounds and the shootings are not related, police said. Their names were not released.
One of the men was shot about 8:09 a.m. Saturday near 38th and Brookdale avenues in East Oakland.
The man was wounded in the leg and was able to get his own transportation to Highland Hospital, where he was in stable condition.
It was not immediately known if the man was shot at by someone in a car or by someone on the street. No motive was released and no suspects were arrested.
The other shooting happened about 1:48 a.m. in the 3800 block of Piedmont Avenue.
A 27-year-old Oakland man told police he had just left Egbert Souse's bar at the corner of Piedmont Avenue and West MacArthur Boulevard and was walking to his car when he heard gunshots and realized he had been wounded in the arm and leg.
Friends drove the man to the nearby Kaiser Hospital emergency room where he was in stable condition.
At least one parked car was hit by gunfire but no one else was reported injured.
Police don't have a motive for the shooting and no arrests have been made.
Police said such shootings are rare in the area. A gas station and Kaiser Hospital office are across the street and some restaurants and other businesses not too far away.
Police and Crime Stoppers of Oakland are offering up to $5,000 in reward money in each shooting for information leading to the arrest of the gunmen. Anyone with information may call police at 510-238-3426 or a tip line at 510-773-2805.
