OAKLAND -- A 16-year-old Hayward boy and a 31-year-old man were killed by gunfire in separate shootings Friday night and Saturday morning in east and north Oakland, police said.

An 18-year-old woman was wounded in the attack that claimed the life of the man.

The shootings are not related, police said.

The 16-year-old was shot about 10:10 p.m. Friday in the 2500 block of Church Street, across from the Eastmont Town Center.

Officer Jason Andersen said the boy may have been in Oakland to attend a house party in the area. He was shot during a confrontation with another person and died at a hospital at 10:50 p.m. Friday.

Police don't have a motive yet and no arrests have been made.

The man and woman were shot about 1:28 a.m. in the 1000 block of 60th Street in North Oakland.

Officer Brad Baker said the couple knew each other but police are still trying to estabish their exact relationship.

The man, who is from Oakland, died at the scene. The woman, an Emeryville resident, is in serious condition at a hospital.

Baker said police don't have a motive yet for the shooting and no arrests have been made.

The two killings were the 25th and 26th homicides of the year in Oakland and the first since March 7. There were 26 homicides in the city at this time last year.
