OAKLAND -- Officers unsuccessfully searched a West Oakland housing development, yard to yard, on Friday for a suspect wanted on weapons charges.

Streets in the area were shut down after officers spotted the man about 10:50 a.m. in the 1200 block of Eighth Street, between Adeline and Union streets.

The man ran into the nearby Mohr Housing complex, police said. Officers were being assisted by the East Bay Regional Park District helicopter and an Emeryville police dog.

Eighth Street was shut down between Adeline and Union. The search was canceled as of 1 p.m. without an arrest.
