OAKLAND — A 61-year-old man sitting in his vehicle Friday morning in East Oakland was hit by stray bullets fired in a dispute on the street involving other people, authorities said.
The man was wounded twice and was in stable condition at a hospital.
The shooting happened at about 2:24 a.m. Friday in the 5800 block of Harmon Avenue near Seminary Avenue.
Authorities said the man was sitting in his parked truck when some people across the street got into an argument that ended with one man firing shots at another man who was trying to run away. Police have not said what the argument was about.
The intended target was not hit by the gunfire but the man sitting in the truck was. The gunman fled before police arrived and the man he was trying to shoot also was not located, authorities said.
Police recovered multiple shell casings in the street.
Police and Crime Stoppers of Oakland are offering up to $5,000 in reward money for information leading to the arrest of the shooter. Anyone with information may call police at 510-238-3426 or Crime Stoppers at 510-777-8572.
