OAKLAND -- Two men were shot to death in different parts of East Oakland on Friday night and early Saturday, police said.
Killed in the Friday night shooting was Jesus Razo Jr., 20. He was found around 11:15 p.m. inside a car that had crashed into bushes in the 9900 block of Maddux Drive in the Brookfield Village area.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
It appears he was shot about a block away at 98th Avenue and that Razo Jr., who lived in the area, was able to continue driving before crashing, police said.
Investigators have found no motive for the killing, and no arrests have been made.
At 12:42 a.m. Saturday, Ernesto Andrade, 28, of San Leandro, was found shot to death in the 3600 block of Galindo Street in the Fruitvale district; two other San Leandro men, ages 29 and 22, were wounded. Police said the men had been in the area visiting relatives when they got into a confrontation with a large group of men on the street, who began beating and shooting them. Police have not made any arrests.
The two killings brought to 75 the number of homicides so far this year in Oakland. Last year at this time there were 52 homicides.
Two other nonfatal shootings happened early Saturday not far from Lake Merritt.
