OAKLAND — A 24-year-old man shot Sunday night in East Oakland died from his wounds Thursday morning, police said.
His name has not been released yet. Authorities said he was an Oakland resident who lived in the area of the shooting.
The man died at 10:39 a.m. Thursday, becoming the 73rd homicide investigated by Oakland police this year. Last year at this time police had investigated 44 homicides in the city.
No arrests have been made yet in the shooting, which also left another man wounded. It happened about 10:04 p.m. Sunday in the 1900 block of Foothill Boulevard near a neighborhood market.
Police said the man who died was part of a group of people hanging out outside when at least two people got out of more than one car a short distance away and began shooting at the group. Authorities believe the 24-year-old man was the intended target.
He was the only one in the group wounded. A 28-year-old man who lives in the area was hit by a stray round and suffered a minor wound.
A motive for the shooting has not yet been released by police.
Police and Crime Stoppers of Oakland are offering up to $15,000 in reward money for information leading to the arrests of the shooters. Anyone with information may call police at 510-238-3821 or 510-238-7950 or Crime Stoppers at 510-777-8572.
