Police are still searching today for two suspects involved in a fatal Berkeley shooting and a crash that killed a pedestrian and a motorist at a busy North Oakland intersection Saturday evening.
A Cadillac with four suspects fleeing Berkeley police crashed into another vehicle about 6:40 p.m. at Martin Luther King Jr. Way and Aileen Street, near Childrens Hospital Oakland. Police said the suspects had opened fire with assault weapons on a man at 10th and Allston streets in West Berkeley several minutes earlier, killing him instantly.
The suspects' car had been going at a high rate of speed eastbound on Aileen Street and failed to stop at a stop sign, hitting a Mazda going southbound on Martin Luther King, police said.
The crash caused the Mazda to hit a pedestrian on the sidewalk in front on the Childrens Hospital Oakland Research Institute on the 5600 block of Martin Luther King.
The pedestrian, a 41-year-old Berkeley man, was taken to Highland Hospital, where he later died, police said. The driver of the Mazda, a 26-year-old Sunnyvale resident, was pronounced dead at the scene. The names of the victims have not been released.
Police captured two suspects in the car, and said one of those in custody is a 22-year-old man from San Leandro.
The Cadillac also hit a Lexus going northbound on Martin Luther King. The driver of that car, along with a passenger were taken to Children's Hospital Oakland with non-life-threatening injuries.
