One man was killed and two others wounded in three unrelated East Oakland shootings Wednesday night and Thursday morning, police said.
The dead man was identified as Tyrone Braswell, 36, of Oakland, who was shot about 12:30 a.m. Thursday in the 1900 block of 26th Avenue. He died at the scene.
Police initially were told Braswell, who lived in another part of Oakland, may have been called to the scene by his father, who possibly was involved in some type of altercation.
But after further investigation, police now believe Braswell was called by someone else, possibly on behalf of his father.
Braswell was shot after a confrontation, but police are not sure why or if it had anything to do with his father.
Police could not immediately locate the father, but he was later found.
He was being interviewed by investigators Thursday afternoon.
His name was not released. No arrests have been made.
In an earlier incident, a 38-year-old Oakland man showed up at a hospital late Wednesday night and told police he was shot in the head about 10 p.m. while walking in the 1600 block of 86th Avenue after getting off a bus.
He said some people drove him to another location, where a relative picked him up and drove him to the hospital. He was in stable condition but declined to give officers a more detailed statement.
Just after 8 p.m. Wednesday, a man was shot in the head as he sat in a car in the 7000 block of Hamilton Street. He was taken to a hospital in stable condition. Police don't have a motive in the shooting, and no arrests have been made. The area is known for drug activity and related violence.
The killing was Oakland's 27th homicide of the year, the same number at this time last year.
