OAKLAND — Police were at the scene of an injury shooting in an East Oakland neighborhood Wednesday night.
Just before 8:40 p.m., police responded to reports of ShotSpotter activity near the 5700 block of Trask Street in the city’s Seminary neighborhood.
When officers arrived, they found a man in a vehicle suffering from at least one gunshot wound and began working to provide life-saving care.
The man’s condition was not immediately available late Monday.
Other officers arrived and worked to confirm reports of a possible second victim, while others blocked off traffic at Seminary Avenue and Trask Street.
A police helicopter circled overhead to help coordinate investigative efforts Wednesday night, according to a social-media account that tracks Bay Area helicopter activity.
