OAKLAND -- Four men were wounded within hours of each other in separate shooting incidents Saturday in East Oakland, police said.

The most recent shooting, at 1:41 p.m. at the Seminary Gas & Food Mart, located at 6235 Seminary Ave., injured two, but both are expected to live. In that incident, two groups were shooting at each other when a man in one of the groups was shot in the leg and a bystander was grazed in the head.

The men are listed in stable condition at an area hospital.

The daylight shooting Saturday afternoon was a continuation of a spate of shootings that began Saturday morning.

Around 9:30 a.m., initial reports on the first shooting were that a man was apparently driving in a car at 98th Avenue and Plymouth Street in the Elmhurst district when someone in another car began shooting at him.

The victim was able to drive a few blocks to the area of 96th Avenue and Cherry Street where police and paramedics were called.

His name and age were not released. He was in stable condition at a hospital.

Police did not have a motive for the shooting and no arrests have been made.

Just over an hour later at 10:39 a.m., police responded to a shooting in the 1500 block of 92nd Avenue. When officers arrived, they found a man lying in a driveway behind a residence.

He is currently in stable condition at an area hospital.
